    Working with musicians over the years, there are split feelings between many musicians. Some welcome the exposure their music gains through DJs playing their music while others feel that the internet and streaming have killed the industry. I believe it's a lack of understanding sometimes for those that oppose streaming. It all comes down to money. If the songwriters and musicians are not making money, then all the exposure in the world means nothing to some who are seeking to gain financially. It's only fair the amount of time and effort a songwriter and musician put into their songs that they make money. The problem is record labels who manage these songwriters and artist distribution of music want to blame streamers such as those on Twitch for the lack of CD sales and online purchases. The reality is it's the peformance rights organizations who collect royalties that are not paying the musicians and artists their fair share. They claim unauthorized streaming is the reason for the lack of payment. But how do they explain when they collect billions of dollars in revenue that they can only pay an artist or songwriter less than $2/month? They will always claim losses in BS claims of "unauthorized" streaming of music, but the reality is they are hiring legal firms to issue DMCA strikes with that money instead of paying the artists as Anaryl has already stated. The musicians that oppose streaming don't look at these facts because they are misled by the industry. Musicians and performers need to start putting more stress on these labels and PROs. As I mentioned in my ideas, Twitch admits in their recent email they sent out to streamers regarding DMCA that 99% of the notifications they received are for music being played in the background. If their statement is true and why would Twitch lie about it, this clearly suggests that DJs who stream music on Twitch are not even been on the radar at this point because of their such small representation Twitch in comparison to the rest of the streamers. While these streamers may be generating revenue from their streams, their profitability is not from the use of other people's music. Their profitability is due to the original content they create with their own time and efforts such as gaming, art, IRL, and sponsorship. The real issue is DMCA strikes are being issued without merit. By law, It is in the burden of the label to prove that the streamer has actually used music for their own personal gain. In 99% of the cases this is not true. It's time for push in the streaming community to put a stop to this DMCA strike nonsense and legal action taken against labels who are effortlessly having quality streamers shut down for loss of revenue.
