Posters???

RedBeard 15 Sep 2004 10:02

Hey All,

Just wondering if someone knows the actual laws behind postering and if there is a site anywhere that would show me what the laws are and fines and who can be fined and what is done about postering?? If someone could pass on that info to me, it would be greatly appreciated! :)

Thanks!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Cafes etc are OK. Street poles can be a problem, some places are better than others.
Fines are $200 per poster. You can take them down within a day or so of the gig and it may be all right. Venues will dob on bands these days as the fines are so high.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Dont put up your posters in the Kingston city area, our band got done for a $4500 fine. Lucky for us we never heard a nother thing about it. This was only about 12 hours after we put them up.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Rule of thumb: if there's no posters up in a spot where you used to see posters - there's a good reason. Keep in mind businesses change hands often and owners have different stances on free ads. If unsure - don't risk it - unless money is no problem - which if that's the case get Rock Posters or a company like them to do it for you.

I've heard of people getting bashed by "mafia-type" gang banger wanna be's for putting up posters in 'their' area. Westgarth area.

Bus Stops, Tram Stops etc are a no go - legally anyway.


Good luck.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Well does anyone know if a venue can be fined for a poster put up by a band that played there, with no actual details of any gigs on the posters?!?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

What about if fliers are "accidentally" left on a train, or something like that? I don't think they would have the same laws applied to them as posters... anybody know for sure?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Venues can be fined and these days I talk to the council and see what needs to be done. Then contact the band or promoter and tell them what to do. If they don't cooperate then I tell the council and let them deal with it. Its too expensive for venues. Get Rock Posters to do stuff. They have been very helpful to the Indie Initiative.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

How can a venue be fined for a band putting up a poster with no details except the band name on the poster? only because the band has played there at some point?... It's like a paint company being fined because someone sprayed their paint all over someone's wall... doesn't make sense to me...</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Because the lawmakers couldn't be bothered finding the bands. It was easier to target the venues. And contracts state that the bands are liable for fines. Nobody is happy abput that. The dance promoters ruined for everybody by postering everywhere.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

But if posters were put up with only band names on them, no venue or gig information, how can they turn around and try and fine a venue? That would mean that would have to fine EVERY venue a band has played at?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

If the poster has your band name and nothing else, then you'll be right. Still illegal but no way of tracking you down. Just don't put down upcoming gigs, contact details, or any of that jazz.

At most unis there are poster kiosks you can put them on. I get a lot of my local band info from those around Monash Clayton.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
