hey if we are not yet affiliated why is our audio getting muted.. copy write laws should only apply if your making money off of the content
copy write laws should not effect new streamers that are not being paid for their streams, once one gets affiliated then and only then should copy write laws apply .. playing my favorite songs in my streams helps my audience get to know me through my interests and sense i haven't built a live audience yet having my audio muted is a huge burden!!! most of my views happen after my streams... please change this i am not breaking the law until i am profiting off of that content!!!!!
the reason of this, and why this will not ever change is simple.
twitch as platform is still earning money from you (remember: twitch sometimes still plays ads when someone joins your stream, even if you are not affiliate/partner).
This leads to the point, that twitch (NOT YOU) as platform still profits from the copyrighted material and as result, would break the law (for profiting from copyrighted content).
So, the reason is not to protect you or something, it is that twitch needs to protect themselves from getting sued for copyright-infringements (what actually happened with the recent DMCA-claims).
And, as result, there is no way to prevent your VoD getting muted for copyrighted material. Oh, and by the way: twitch ToS already state that YOU must have to make sure not to illegally show copyrighted material in your stream. The automated muting of VoD´s is just a backup for twitch to reduce risk of getting sued for copyright infringement.
