Twitch has announced the flow of DMCA strikes threatening streamers.
The platform has apologized to content creators, but the bottom line is that you can not stream recorded music.
Amazon’s Twitch live streaming platform has become an increasingly useful tool for artists who want to reach their fans in the absence of live music during the COVID-19 quarantine.
As a result, in the last few months, Twitch has moved closer to the music business, which led to the appointment of Tracy Chan, the leader of the Spotify for Artists brand, as the head of engineering for new music products.
Of course, this does not mean, of course, that SoundCloud has partnered with Twitch to launch SoundCloud Pro, SoundCloud Premier and Repost creators directly to Twitch Affiliate, and launch a new Twitch channel called SoundCloud on Twitch. which SoundCloud describes as “a new home where all artists, creators, listeners will meet evolving activities, listen to some of the major names in music, and connect directly with the SoundCloud team.”
Meanwhile, as Twitch attracts more and more viewers (several million of them), supporters seem to be becoming more and more inconvenient about the use of patented music in VOD videos posted by computer users, and Twitch’s popular transmitters They now face a difficult legal dilemma. ”
In a statement released recently by DMCA to Twitch streamers said:
How did we get to this moment? Until May of this year, streamers received fewer than 50 music-related DMCA notification each for the major record labels started ending thousands of DMACA notifications each that targeted creators’ archives, mostly for snippets of tracks in year-old Clips.
We continue to receive large batches of notification, and we don’t expect that to slow down.
This means two things:
1. If you play recorded music on your stream, you need to stop doing that.
2. If you haven’t already, you should review your historical VODs and Clips that may have music in them and delete any archives that might as well relate to such scenario.
This is deranged lmao fuck the DMCA pic.twitter.com/ZN5E7XRUij

Twitch admin also said, “We were as surprised by the number of music-related DMCA takedowns as you were. Before May, we received fewer than 50 per year. Now, we’re receiving thousands each week. This led to the warning email some of you received in October.”
