    Hi, I know that this is a very late response, but we’re hoping to find time to address this issue later this year. There are a few steps we’ll have to take to solve this problem in a way that will work for all streamers, but we understand the severity of the issue.

    Seriously Twitch. Implement a Permaban model that prevents bots from connecting at all and consequently being listed in the Users list. If you want to incorporate some sneaky monitoring of chatter, do it on your server side without clogging our user list. With the number of bots out there, you're reasoning for allowing this has obviously been abused.

    Yes, you should be getting notices. You need a SYNCHONIZATION LICENSE to keep VODs - this is nothing new. Twitch doesn't pay for that as it's expensive. What Twitch has (and I checked) is an ASCAP license which allows for livestreaming of DJ/VJing and music in the background with the only caveat that you can't save it in any way, shape or form.

    Why DMCA is a thing is bizarre. With the ASCAP license, it shouldn't be.

    Actually... Twitch... What are you doing? You HAVE AN ASCAP LICENSE! I checked. Legally, we, the users, are allowed to LIVESTREAM DJ/VJ sets as well as have music on in the background with the caveat that after the stream, we can not save or archive the VOD file. That's it. So why is this an issue here?

    I can only guess you're somehow obtaining a revenue flow from the music industry and you're getting strong-armed? DMCA should not even be an issue here. How do I know? Because I used to run a website with an ASCAP license that's how. The only rule was you couldn't play certain artists in a row or perhaps a live concert recording of them. So seriously.... what's going on here?

    As for MixCloud, yes, that $15 a month most likely is going to what's called a SYNCHONIZATION LICENSE which is what you need to legally archive such recordings.
