  1. I’ve tried to triple check my clarity. Can I get in trouble for singing a copyrighted song if I use nothing like the music, original voice, etc? Just musicless karaoke style?

  2. I had ~5 minutes of my Twitch video muted for "Birds and Sirens - Queens April 2020" (a YT video) - which is literally just birds chirping and police sirens. This is not music, this couldn't possibly be legitimate. This is clearly in bad faith.

    You can improve DMCA/Copyright issues on Twitch by confirming legitimacy prior to approval or action being taken.

  3. Were all broadcasters right? So why can't we play music like a radio station. What is the difference?

  5. I like the idea with the soundtrack by twitch. But instead of just it applying to the music on there. That app should be able to cut any song from VODs thats outside that app. For example Itunes or Spotify.

  6. I feel like Twitch should have a better way of dealing with dmca Claims and instead of banning or suspending Channels. U should give us a tool to edit out the copyrighted parts of a VOD

  7. Hello, this is CuppOfCocoa. A few months back, I sent a message to support asking if playing original video game music (for example, having Mario music playing in the background) is safe for DMCA, but the response was that there was not enough information available to give the answer. A friend of mine said that it should be safe, because if you were to be playing that video game (Mario) and streaming it, you would be having the original video game music on stream anyway; I wanted to see if there was new information/an official answer on this (Nintendo might…

  9. I think it would be great if streamers can choose to pay a small monthly or yearly fee to be able to play copyrighted music on their stream (the fee would pay the royalties to the artists). Basically like a PPL/PRS licence.

  11. The most obvious and fair interpretation would be someone who continues to infringe on specific copyrighted content after a DMCA takedown request, but it would be very helpful to know exactly what Twitch means by this.

  12. Why did some people receive multiple strikes from the takedown fiasco

    And will you give us a way to remove strikes, living on the edge of 1 strike and your whole career is gone, is very demotivating to produce any more content.

  14. 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

  15. 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!

  16. 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?

  17. 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. If you delete VODs, are they still be targeted by DMCA and give bans?

  19. This might not be simple but seeing that Twitch has a lot of money, I don't think purchasing music labels is too out of line.

  20. For the DMCA / copyright issue, you can agree with youtube somehow and open a bar above the chat (temporary). This bar can be a place behind the song that the broadcaster wants, just like twitch's relationship with the prime video, where we can control the sound ourselves or turn off the song. In this area, the first question is whether the broadcaster can play the song they want in the background, and we have two options: "play" or "not". When you press yes play, let the song play in the back and add to the number of views of…
