Pilgrim was a Berlin-based management.
Over the years Pilgrim became hated by fans more and more, because of their handling of fansites and bootlegs. Pilgrim sued fans for mentioning their bootlegs in a forum, they also sued websites who put out a link to a leaked photo of the Liebe ist für alle da shooting. Pilgrim closed many fansites over its existence.
Pilgrim was not a fan-friendly management over the years. Nor was it a "friendly" label in any way. Pilgrim sued a lot of fans, websites and media for different reasons. Some fans were sent cease-and-desist letters because of mentioning their collection of bootlegs online, some even had to pay high fees. Fansites were closed because of unauthorized use of Rammstein-related imagery. Other websites media also received and cease-and-desist letters, when a then unreleased photo and the then unreleased song Liebe ist für alle da were circulating online. The management tried to prevent the spreading of those two leaks in every way possible.
Some time in 2010 the band quit their contract with Pilgrim and started their own management: Rammstein GbR.
