Twitch just made major changes to its DMCA suspension process to help streamers

Twitch is making some important changes to how streamers are made aware of DMCA warnings to help them avoid bans.

DMCA issues have been plaguing Twitch streamers for quite some time, with some even afraid to broadcast IRL rides to the store at the risk of copyrighted music playing in the background.

While confusion lingers over what is and isn’t allowed, particularly with the TV show meta, Twitch is taking steps to help streamers know when they’re hit by a copyright issue.

In emails sent to streamers, the Amazon-owned platform explained how it’s changing its alerts going forward.

Currently, if Twitch’s system detects copyrighted audio in VODs or clips, it will automatically mute the VOD and delete associated clips on the channel to reduce copyright strikes. However, there would be no information about the copyrighted material.

In the future, if there are multiple instances of copyrighted audio, users will receive a notification and an email detailing what was copyrighted and a link to the VOD.

“In addition, we will update your stream settings to unpublish your VODs by default going forward. Your unreleased VODs can be reviewed and either published or downloaded from the Video Producer page of your Creator Dashboard,” explained Twitch.

Streamers have the option to turn VOD settings back on and turn off copyright audio warnings, but Twitch advises against it.

It will be interesting to see if these changes end up leading to fewer bans on the platform, or if the warnings are simply ignored.
