Recognize Music Licensing and Add an Option to Put A Music License in to combat future false claims (ie. SOCAN license to broadcast music)
Some of us understand fully the legal requirements to stream music, I myself having ran a successful online radio station for 10 years, understand paying for licensing, broadcasting, ect, ect. This license can include online play as well (myself being registered with SOCAN and paying yearly fees), this legally allows me to play copywritten music at will online, it adhere's to all DMCA guidelines and superceeds any copyright claim against my channel, and yet, twitch ignores this, refuses to put a place where we can supply the license number or facilitate any number of ways to alleviate this. This would be a huge game changer, when we could pay 165 a year to play music, this keeps our viewers happy, us safe, twitch is not liable, and the copyright holders get paid... But instead its just automatically denied, I even had to go around twitch and to the company that scans videos to prove them wrong on a few bogus claims from fraudulent copyright ownership claims... This shows a huge problem with Twitch's approach and actually opens up for us creators to take serious legal action against twitch for unjust ramifications on incorrect claims, something I am sure Twitch would not be interested in... Instead of creating a completely flawed system, invite copyright labels, and muscians' djs, radio hosts/operators to collaborate and help make a far superior system. Because as it stands each time I get hit with a mute by twitch, its a violation of a music licensing entity that actually has authority that would superceed twitch's opinion or lack thereof.
