  1. Any streamer on a look see streaming copy righted material should be struck from the site period. They tend to be partners or affiliates thus making a mockery of that status. Folks are out here doing some amazing things that take time to grow and these streamers are getting subs and donations off the back of copy righted material. It is not ethical and should be dealt with harshly.
    At this point no one can claim ignorance of dmca rules and copy right obligations it is simple as that.
    When twitch gets sued by warner bros and the whole thing…

  2. Do I need to explain this? Do I EVEN need to explain this?

    If Twitch Partners are going to abuse DMCA, then there should be some SERIOUS punishment for it. Revoke their Partnerships for anyone who blatantly abuses it and, should the case be a severe one, disallow them from re-achieving Partnership status for a length of time or even permanently (with Affiliation being either harder to attain or also permanently disallowed; again, depends on the severity of the case).

    Hold the people at the top accountable. Do not let them abuse the system because it hurts people on the…

  3. Copyright violators are running rampant on Twitch right now and for the long term good of the site and the people who make a living off of it, users should be able to report suspected copyright violations and Twitch should investigate and take action if it finds that the streamer is using someone else's content.

    Twitch needs to get ahead of this wave of bad behaviour before powerful corporate entities or politicians force Twitch to take action that harms everyone.

    I'd also recommend implemented a YouTube like 3 strike copyright violations system for egregious repeat offenders.

  4. Top streamers get banned for less than a weekend for every kind of offense, DMCA included, only to come back and get more attention and money thrown at them for blatantly violating the ToS. What kind of message does it send that nearly every top streamer on Twitch right now has received some number of bans? As it is now streamers might as well get banned on purpose, because currently it's paid PTO with a raise on return to work. Stop catering to the top streamers and actually make your bans consistent and of a consequential length.

  5. Content creators need a way to express how they feel in any way. The First Amendment guarantees our right to free expression and free association, which means that the government laws does not have the right to forbid us from saying what we like and writing what we like; we can form clubs and organizations, and take part in demonstrations and rallies. Although this would be a legal act if anyone infringed on copyright rules. The whole idea of punishing people for expression is non sense. DMCA needs to re-evaluate it's core fundamentals which should be to help everyone.

  6. All Star Wars Music technically Falls under Fair use, so as long as it is being used for something Star Wars. Star Wars music shouldn't be getting flagged there's over 50-100 different Star Wars Video games...

    Your rules are stupid, you aren't protecting anybody but the user themselves, it would have been easier for you to right a EULA, that explains that Twitch isn't responsible and that the video creator holds full accountability, instead of making this dumb system you guys made, where videos get muted, while playing games they were meant to be played in.....

  7. With the new year a number of works have now entered the public domain. A given channel's audience may be global and so these works will not enter the public domain uniformly. Presently the existing guidelines specify that the broadcaster must have the rights, but there is an important distinction between the rights within their own country or for all countries the broadcast may reach (in effect, the longest duration across all countries). If the rights apply to individuals who may be viewing, then it would be preferable to be able to restrict the broadcast to certain regions so that…

  9. Force streamers to utilize overlay extensions that identify artists when using copyrighted music. This is free advertising for those artists / record labels. It's a feature that is already built into StreamElements Media Request streaming tool. This is no different than streaming games and you know it. If you refuse to use an identifier, you get hit with DMCA.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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...

  19. 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…
