About LEGO leaks

Hi everybody...

It's your RLUG ambassador speaking here.  As per request from our social media guy, I'm gonna try and explain a bit what's OK and what's NOT OK to share or post on our facebookpage or forums.

Now I'm informing you all because LEGO doesn't want us to spread leaks... news that isn't supposed to be out there yet.. and as good friends of The LEGO Group.. we just kindly comply :D..it's a giving, getting thing..
And they're asking us not to do so, because we want to remain on a good relationship with The LEGO Group..And there are certain "brands" who would like to copy everything LEGO does as soon as possible...

There are so many news outlets and means to gather information on our shared LEGO hobby..yet it's never easy to decide what to post and it's not easy for us (Registered LEGO User Groups & Registered LEGO Fan Media) to comply to the rules LEGO has set for us.
The rules on their own aren't black/white, and LEGO loves making it even harder on us with exclusive news agreements, closed & open fairs,...

What exactly are RLFM?
Well they are media (youtube channels, website, forums, newgroups, magazines..) who spread the LEGO hobby.  Some examples are: Brothers brick, Brickset, eurobricks, Bricks magazine, Zusammengebaut, Beyond the Brick, the Brick Show,...)

They tend to abide to the "rules" all fairly well. and so do we :) Yeay us!

What LEGO really doesn't want to be out in the wild, are pictures of sets that aren't supposed to be out there. And it's really hard to tell when something is not supposed to be out there (or leaked).
Pictures taken from closed toy fairs, factory floors, shaky pictures of soon to be released sets and pictures with a watermark stamp on them (usually saying it 's preliminary images or similar).

As stated before, when something is posted on the RLFM you can be fairly sure it's safe to share..but these things are also just run by humans and we tend to sometimes make mistakes..
So if you ever wonder if you're allowed to share something on our pages and aren't sure.. just let me know what you want to share and I'll have a look :)

If you want to know what are registered LEGO Fan Media; or want to expand your LEGO sources..have a look at the list below... I've even added the 17 new RLFM for 2017:
