  1. During the current situation of the pandemic removing DJs from crucial entertainment venues, more DJs have turned to Twitch to help with their financial crisis while most clubs and bars are closed, as well as keeping their performing art fresh.

    While DMCA is still putting a tight grip on recorded music on stream, and DJs are currently doing everything they can to prevent full tracks being played during their sets, will DJing on Twitch still become accessible during this time? Also, what is the policy for music mixed and cut up on the fly?

  2. I agree we as streamers need to be more responsible for what we broadcast. But having a VOD muted or content removed without full understanding of the reason isn't useful. I have had VODs mutes for in-game content, but I couldn't figure out what could possibly trigger such an action. Please, help us do better.

  4. I think it’s ridiculous that you aren’t letting us listen to our favourite artist that we like we pay for song to listen to and we can keep forever so that does make us that we own it cause we pay the artist and we are giving them credit for there music if we stream it or not I think this whole copyright stuff is going to far

  5. There needs t be some kind of leniency for people who receive DMCA strikes due to in-game music. We should not be forced to play games without music due to an overreaching rule by the greedy music companies.

  6. modifying the process used in DMCA to make VOD's temporarily unavailable until the alleged content violation can be legally resolved between the Streamer and the alleged rights holder, with the streamer having the option to mute the segment of the VOD that can be agreed is in violation if any, given that some detection software is prone to errors scanning hundreds of thousands of hours of VODs

  7. Some of us smaller streamers and even the bigger streamers. We like to play some chilled music but with DMCA we cannot do that anymore and we have to rely on just normal game sound. And sometimes the music in the game in poo poo an we do not like it. So that is why we have our own list of music. So anyway we can fix this?

  8. It’d be great if we could plug in a youtube link into a DMCA checker and see if its DMCA approved. People tell me lofi songs are ok while others dont! Pretty confusing!

  12. Hey Twitch i have a question for you. Since DMCA as taken advantage like others and including myself that uses Twitch Soundtrack. Should Twitch add a feature where broadcasters can sign up for music license to play that music on the stream. I think this great idea for Twitch! Thanks being platform throughout my two years streaming!

  13. Will you, right now in public, make a commitment to protect streamers who are acting in good faith who get hit with DMCA notices?

    Look at Github and what they committed to within a very short time after youtube-dl was taken down earlier this year. They are protecting their creators rather than treating them like criminals. Can Twitch do the same?

  14. WeDiscoverGeeks is my educational firm that teaches lessons on STEAM Edutainment, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Makers, Music, Video Games, and Cosplay. Some of our education streams deal with music lessons with popular songs, how does the DMCA rights affect our lesson plans?

  15. Will the next steps to help creators with DMCA warning and take downs to be more proactive? So far, what I've seen, is that Twitch has been more reactive.
    Is it a feasible solution for Twitch to be an intermediary for creators and the music industry to broker a solution that would allow creators to pay a fee for the use of copyrighted music. I'm sure that many creators would like to have that opportunity and if Twitch were willing to find a way to make a deal with the music industry to facilitate this, Twitch would be seen as…

  16. Not a lot of the music streamers/performers have their own music. A lot of us music streamers are also people trying to get to the industry but still have no resources or skills to their own music. Our main way to get through the first step is covering and practicing music from original creators. We know we don't own all of our music but we want to learn and start from these music. We also know that all music are influenced by others as well. So this is kind of impeding us to share music and to grow. I know…

  18. Can you please just pay the labels for licensing already? This is getting really old. The artists want us to play their music.

  19. Have you considered making a deal with music licensing companies (BMI, ASCAP, etc) to allow streamers permission to use their catalogs if we opt to pay them (or you?) a small monthly fee for this right/service?

  20. Will you oppose any proposal going through Congress, such as the one passing through it right now, that would make streaming copyrighted content a felony with prison time?
