  1. If a Vod has been up for 24 hours and the music was never muted in the Vod let me be able to make clips from the Vod and stop deleting clips for non copyright music.

  2. Have an option to download and/or export the original unmuted version of the VOD, if the streamer wishes to export the unmuted version to YouTube or download the unmuted version to edit out the copyrighted music, so the streamer has an unmuted version for a highlight.

    Another potential option is to have the same thing, but make it a tool on the Twitch website (like where the past broadcasts are stored). As in, having the streamer edit out unmuted parts, but make it so they're not just separate VODS- have the choice to merge them together.

  3. I had my vod muted and after verifying who was the owner and listen to the song, I discovered that he's not the owner at ALL!
    That song or part of that song is a mere copy/use of Apple Loops music and samples free to use even for commercial use or broadcasting by Apple Inc. That package of DVD song/sound/sample is part of the Apple product "Final Cut Studio" that I OWN! So I have the license to use it in Twitch or any other broadcasting use.

    Now the problem is the external company that ask Twitch to mute! Those…

  4. 안녕하세요.
    아직 방송은 시작하진 않았지만 방송하기 전에 궁금한 점이 있어서 문의드립니다.
    저작권 관련한 문제인데 제가 하려는 방송은 수학문제를 풀어주는 방송을 하고 싶은데

    1. 카메라로 제가 풀고 있는 수학문제를 보여주는 방법
    2. 시청자가 트게더나 다른 카페에서 시청자가 올린 수학문제를 보여주는 방법

    위의 두가지 방법으로 방송을 하고 싶은데 모든 방식이 저작권 위배된건지 알고 싶습니다.
    저작권에 문제가 되지 않고 방송이 진행될 수 있는 방법이나 방식이 따로 있는지 궁금해서 문의드립니다.

    아예 모든 출판물이 저작권법상 방송에 보여지면 안되는 건지 책이 특정이 안되고 이름이 공개가 되지 않는다면 가능한건지 방송이 가능한 가이드라인이 궁금합니다.

  5. Put together a comprehensive list of games that could put streamers at risk of DMCA. Similar to how there is a banned list of games not allowed to play on Twitch (outdated). This DMCA list would need to be updated frequently.

    Maybe also with a description of what could cause a strike in the game. Would allow for at risk games to still be streamed and promoted, but would allow streamers to be more prepared to mute if necessary.

  6. Please accept questions about DMCA. there's stuff the DMCA-Info page doesn't cover and can't be answered because there'S no way to ask.

    At the moment if you choose "DMCA" as category you get instantly forwarded to the Info page about creating and responding to DMCA-Claims but there'S no way to ask things about DMCA.

  7. Why not get together with the Msuic and Movie copyright managment companies ans such, so that you can work out an agreement that allows copyright owners to be paid, and Twitch isns't being sued and spending tons in that effort.

    This would pave the way for people to be able to use music, and show things without violation of copyrights. At no time should broadcasters/streamers be given any of that revenue. Why? Simple, the content is not owned by them.

    If you can have systems monitor for violations, just set them to place links within the video, and in the…

  8. Muted Auto be shouldn't be Muted when exported or downloaded! It is at our risk to upload that somewhere else! It is already muting my commentary and dialogue too, and most of the time in game music has other dialogue and sound effects going to so there will almost never be clear music for anyone to get copy of!

  9. For Musical Content Copyright Disclaimer there’s a law in the UK called Fair Use under section 107 Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship and research.
    Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statue 5 might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favour of fair use. Therefore my videos are for entertainment purposes only.
    They demonstrate my skills as a disc jockey and all audio was purchased legally..

    I’m from the UK, I live in the UK & abide by the…

  11. You created an amazing tool to resolve 95% of DMCA issues and decided to lock it behind Soundtrack by Twitch?? Why? If you give us the ability to tie an application(s) (Example: chrome for spotify/youtube etc.., or even a media player for local audio) to the "remove from vod" obs plugin, there would be no music from anywhere (except from in games) in any vods. Why is the DMCA chaos not solved already with this? Seems like a MAJOR oversite or this is just a way for you to try and push your Soundtrack by Twitch software by holding this…

  12. As a DJ we help labels put music out there by entertaining the masses either if it’s as small as a birthday party to as large as arenas, with that being said. Covid has put us at a disadvantage as we used to serve crowds at a time, now at a time of streaming can we find a way to work with DJs, where you can regulate (i.e DJ’s are not allowed to play more than 1:30 of a track in the risk of being muted/copyright strike) without the Dj set being muted or in the risk of a copyright…

  13. I'm a DJ most of us are in record pools and receive the digital music from distributors. So we have fair use. The funny thing is that these companies know that.. How else would artist really get recognized and stay relevant...

    I suggest Twitch create a category for DJs and give DMCA the list and say these DJs most who are professional Djs and say these people are protected by the fair use... Every one of my videos on FB are overturned because I report fair use...

  14. Playing games with in-game music. (no external sound or music, all in-game) Please explain copyright implications of in-game music and the concept that all games are copyright material. How is in-game music different from the intellectual property of the actual game being shared publicly?

  15. Dear Twitch Overlords and Emperors (and maybe Mr. Bezos himself),

    My name is Rob and I hail from a band called Psychostick, and we've been active professionally since about 2005. We've gone through the gamut of the music business in our own way and have learned quite a bit about the inner workings of the industry.

    The DCMA thing is something us artists respect and appreciate, however since this takedown drama started happening, I believe there's a simple (but probably not easy) solution to this problem that terrestrial radio stations have been abiding by since music became an "industry."

  16. So I would 1st like to point out that there's a lot of missing links on the DMCA talk.

    Most of these have to do with the Categories being streamed and what those Categories have Pre-Built in them.

    A fine example of this is with EA and 2K and all the EA and 2K Sports Games.

    These games contain 1 Major Flaw that will impact the DMCA and that is the Game Soundtrack Music.

    For many years the In-Game Music in the Sports Games are all gonna be DMCA Hits as the music is picked by the Athlete(s) on the…

  19. "Whoops. Something went wrong," is about the most confusing and least helpful error message that you could provide for twitch users when their clips fail due to copyright music.

    How about, "This clip failed due to copyright music?"

  20. I just got my VOD muted...for using Twitch Soundtrack. Two separate songs were marked as unlicensed. This is ridiculous, and needs to be changed. How can Twitch promote Twitch Soundtrack as 'the solution' for DMCA takedowns and as a Spotify alternative, if it's causing the exact same issues as any other music platform?
