Don't allow accounts to stream anime or tv shows. Make it easy to report it!
There is a trend for people to stream anime series which not only is illegal, since they don't own the content which has copyright, but this will hurt twitch content creators.
Most of these channels are using an illegal streaming website to stream the show on twitch.
If they are using a legal site (for example, Crunchyroll) they are breaking the law by double streaming their content here.
They are not creating their own content, hurting all hard-working streamers that actually put effort on twitch.
The problem is there is no easy way of making a report for this case. When a user reports for copyright it sends them to a link with forms that need to be submitted, discouraging people from actually reporting. I think this is why this trend is only growing.
I'm all for this. The Retro section especially is filled with this, old TV shows, classic wrestling, anime, full length movie streams and there's no way to get this stuff taken down without being the copyright holder yourself. We need a system in place to report illegal use of copywritten material to keep this platform free from clutter.
i've noticed that recently as well.. and when i tried to report for copyrighted content i just got 3 links for "DMCA Notification Guidelines", "Trademark Policy" and "Developer Agreement". So basically no report was possible at least not without sending an email with detailed information and so on, which is something i think 99% of the people won't take the time for.
You forgot all them jackholes who stream live sporting events...I don't think any of them have NHL/NFL/Nascar, so on so forth approval....That's theft! And yet these jackholes get 100's of thousands of views and make affiliate in an instant....Why aren't they banned????
