    wäre zwar schön für die Streamer, aber warum sollte twitch das tun?

    Versuche dich mal wirtschaftlich in twitch hineinzuversetzen. Du bist eine Firma, die für den eigenen Profit eine Plattform schafft, auf der content creator ihre werke streamen. Dein Ziel ist es damit Profit zu machen.

    Würdest du potenzielle Einnahmen von deinen Partnern frewillig einschränken, um einem winzig kleinem Teil deiner Kunden (unter diese Kategorie fallen bedingt auch die streamer selbst) ein klein bisschen zu helfen, ohne dass für dich dabei etwas herausspringt?

    Der Kostenfaktor (verlust durch Einnahmen großer Streamer) ist einfach größer als der Nutzen für twitch. Das Risiko, Einnahmen zu verlieren ist größer als die Chance, mehr Einnahmen zu generieren. Eine solche Entscheidung gemäß deines Vorschlages ist sowohl unwirtschaftlich als auch profitabel und man kann mit ziemlicher Sicherheit sagen, dass weder twitch noch eine vergleichbare Plattform auf lange Sicht eine solche Entscheidung treffen wird.

    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.

    this is an idea i absolutely want to support because of my own living circumstances.
    Going a bit into detail and adding a little more details to the suggestion for this scenario:

    For myself, i am currently unemployed (due to health issues). Because of this, i get Unemployment benefits and i have to specify earnings to the state, that will cut down my benefits i get from them. In the past, this has lead me to getting my benefits getting re-calculated every month, leading to partially critical financial situations because the money gets cut short in advance, and i get it back one month later if i stay below the allowed amount of monthly additional earnings.

    Making it possible to get Affiliate-Status in non-Profit (basically redirecting all potential earnings 100% to twitch) would resolve the issue, making both, twitch and the streamer profiting from it (the streamer will not have to deal with taxes and comparable stuff, while still getting the other Affiliate-benefits such as server-sided transcoding and VoD storing. twitch on the other hand will get the full cut from subscriptions and cheers instead of sharing it with the streamer). In that case, it would be absolutely necessary, that none of the money ever reaches a point, where the streamer has access to it (for example a digital wallet) and while in "non-profit-mode", there should be no way for payout or comparebale income going to the streamer.

    At this point, if you want to accept the invitation to a "non-Profit-Affiliate-Program" all steps regarding taxes and similar things could be skipped .

    In case you want to change this later, there could just be the option to re-start the affiliate onboarding just as it is right now and choose to be profit- or non-profit-Affiliate.
