Private the server Twitch keeps all of the deleted VODs and clips on
Evidence of the situation I describe will be at the end of this description.
Twitch streamers are being DMCA'd despite deleting all of their old VODs and clips that they were told to delete. For those that aren't aware, that media never actually got deleted, just taken off of Twitch. Every old VOD and clip that has ever existed (yes that includes banned streamers) are still stored on a server that Twitch owns.
Now you may be wondering why this is an issue, and more importantly, why is this only an issue now? Well here's the thing: The server hosting this content is completely public.
Because this server is public, DMCA bots have found their way into it, and despite the streamers deleting everything like they were told, they are STILL getting DMCA takedowns because of this server's current state. This is of no fault of their own.
I am not suggesting we nuke every last second of content on the server. Twitch just needs to make the server not public so that streamers don't get struck down for content that they tried to delete.
Context and evidence for those that are not aware of the situation:
Accounts from other streamers claiming this happened to them:
Pretty sure this is illegal in the EU, too. Twitch has to give it's users the ability to permanently delete their data/content. This is scary.
