It was Twitch’s most recent DMCA audio effects, not music

If you are a Twitch gamer and recently got a DMCA, it is likely for one of the most ridiculous reasons you have ever heard. Today it is reported that the latest series of DMCA takedowns that have threatened thousands of accounts on the social streaming platform with channel deletion suspended have absolutely nothing to do with music. It had to do with sound effects. Yes, that’s right, the hits were against people’s channels against the sound effects that few companies consider royal. In one example, Someone was attacked The sound of “the wind” of World of WarcraftFound another Clock chimes In the VR game. Moreover, DMCA notices do not come from live broadcasts, rather, they come from clips created on people’s channels saved in their archives. Lots of issues that surfaced with games they played years ago believed they were safe.

What exactly is the hype you could make on Twitch these days that DMCA wouldn’t give you?

While Twitch apologized for the problem in its latest blog entry, the truth of the situation is that Twitch itself has become an unsustainable platform. Like a snake eating its tail, you can’t keep sending DMCA notices to the most random sounds and expect anyone to want to use your platform. Muting is not an option in this case since the sounds are built into the very games they encourage people to play to increase their numbers. All things considered, it seems the only solution for those who come forward with the live broadcast is to delete all their clips and turn off the ability to create clips from the streams altogether. Since it’s become so evident with this latest round of DMCAs, which they have no control over because they’re forced to enforce as soon as the company rolls them out, the company has no plan to correct or fight it.
