  1. 12-11-20 was the first communication from your platform regarding DMCA strikes. I am one of the minnow streamers you decided not to merge into your communication program. DMCA strikes for folks like me - not a concern for Twitch? Not going to expend your resources in that way?

  2. Using the DMCA sensor data identify the affected frames. Sample the creator voice frequency scope keep it in the resampled version and remove every other sound from the content. Replace the "Striked" content with the DMCA filtered resample. This leads to the possibility of re-usuing the content with the option of the creator ads a new sound layer to the content. In sum give a chance to keep the content, clean of DMCA preserved for the future to see.

  3. First off Twitch, you are very wrong if you think that I or many other affiliate streamers who receive zero exposure from your algorithms are worried about DMCA. Maybe the big streamers are more easily influenced by their contractual obligations, but not the rest of the community who make no profit or gain by streaming on your platform.

    Secondly, let's start off with a little about the music industry and licensing itself. As a founder and operator of an online radio station, I have paid alone in licensing/royalties over 8 years close to $10,000. I am a firm believer that…

  4. Most game's have licensed music like RDR2 or other games that have music imbedded in at the start middle or otherwise in the game, being muted or getting a strike or muted because of in-game music is a bit wrong when it's outta the streamers hand's no matter how much we minimize thing's like that do happen!! Take a step back for a bit and make sure it's worth a copy right strike!! Those of us that stream the game with no music except for what we can't help during the game shouldn't have to worry about being banned or…

  5. "Most importantly, don’t play recorded music in your stream unless you own all rights in the music, or you have the permission of the necessary rights holder(s)."

    My idea is don't contradict yourself, Twitch Staff.

  6. I have the appropriate APRE local license to play protected music, stream online, post online videos with said content and there is no way to notify twitch. There should be a way to connect my license which i have paid handsomely for. Its ridiculous there arent any ways to tie it to my license and having to appeal 20-30 songs each VOD is painful. I have the right, why is it so hard.

  7. Not so much an idea, but I and dozens of my DJ friends only signed up with Twitch, because we're all out of work from the pandemic, and livestreaming DJ sets was our only outlet at this time. We don't even really make any profit, short of a few bucks from donations. This is mainly for therapy.

    And most of the DJ's I know, don't even play mainstream/top 40 music in our sets. Is there any other legal options, besides doing private Zoom parties, or signing up for a premium Mixcloud account for us? I've been doing a weekly Sunday…

  8. With the vast diversity of streamers ranging from young to old, professional to casual, Twitch needs to assign an expert to review the various EULAs for the games streaming on Twitch. This would provide more efficient, consistent, and helpful EULA interpretation, and it would enable mechanisms for Twitch and game companies to resolve problems with EULAs and potential DMCA issues quickly and efficiently.

    Twitch should have one point person (or small team) review legal documents such as EULAs and identify key points relevant to streamers. They should then communicate those points to streamers and build additional relevant safeguards into Twitch…

  9. Currently, it is hopelessly impractical for streamers to do what they do best, entertain with back ground music filling the silence between moments when they game or interact, while the danger of blanket copyright strikes resulting in forced stream and VOD censoring exists. If twitch wants this to work effectively, they have to fight for it. This could mean hiring legal experts, and/or lobbyists to work to implement something similar to the Fair Use Act under US law in the long term, but in the mean time I've prepared a suggestion or two that should help the situation if implemented.

  10. Facebook Gaming made it so that it is possible for all creators to use all music in their broadcasts without worry of any sort of DMCA backlash. Facebook, being one of the biggest social media sites, and now acquiring Oculus, is still significantly smaller than Twitch/Amazon. If they are able to get something worked out to make it so that DMCA isn't a worry anymore, then I imagine Twitch/Amazon can as well.

    Points to bring up:


    • As long as the music is not the main source of the content, and is just heard in the background, then it is helping…

  11. I'm offering to forfeit a small donation to the respected record companies in exchange to play music. I currently don't have any strikes, and am willing to negotiate a fair charge to be able to play a certain genre of music.

  12. You could create a tool to report a copyright claim. This tool would send the id or url (I don't know how you handle that) in order for Twitch to check if the claim is legit and if it is, you can send the notification to the streamer using the id/url of the claimed VOD or clip. By doing that, the streamer will know exactly which VOD/clip has been reported and can act accordingly given the situation.
    That is my idea and I think it could be very useful.

  13. Hi, I kinda said it all in the title but, you all should work with Bandcamp and independent artists to create a new way to discover music!

    This would revolutionize the music industry!!

    Please consider.

  14. Implement a muting and/or cropping feature that allows streamers to remove offending content. This muting/removal should carry over to clips. Prior to granting strikes, streamers should automatically get a warning, their VOD can be put on hold or set to "private," highlighting the VOD in question and allowing them to personally remove or mute the offending section in their VODs before it can be made public again.

  15. I feel like this should have been a given from the start, but apparently not.

    WHEN YOU SEND OUT THE INFRINGEMENT NOTIFICATIONS TWITCH, PROVIDE MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE INFRINGEMENT.

    Don't just give us "information about the allegedly infringed work, who the claimant is, how the claimant can be contacted, and possible penalties under our repeat infringer policy", give us NOT ONLY names and links to affected clips and VODs, but also TIMESTAMPS FOR EACH INFRINGEMENT.

    This information would provide users with a better ability to not only find the content that was allegedly infringed upon, but would allow users to…

  16. Did I stutter, your current system is NOT viable, nor does it keep you, or your creators safe.

    stop screwing with people's lives, and do this right.

  17. I was wondering if the policy of parody lyrics could be clarified. Most of your policy says as long as a good attempt is made to match the lyrics.

    However some comedy channels might want to use parody lyrics improvising a parody acapella on the spot.

    we're not using a recording of the song but we are singing in the cadence and notage of the copyrighted song but we're singing alternate lyrics.

    Like for example I noted that the Billy Ocean song Love Zone happened to come out at the same time that we discovered The warp zone in Super…

  18. I'm not a professional YouTuber but I got a dmca notice for friends wedding playing I will always love you at the actual wedding.

    I think the owners of that song got so many requests to do that and so many backlash against it that they decided to do ads for songs were they placed an ad on the video that's clickable in return for letting the video played the song.

    I was considering giving everyone a 5 second theme song to my regular listeners. Since the music is copyrighted I've since held back. maybe ads for songs would be…
