A number of twitch streamers were reportedly issued DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown notices this week from Twitch who informed streamer that it has deleted content violating music copyright laws after receiving “a sudden influx of DMCA takedown requests” back in June, according to Polygon.

The notice stated (per Twitter): “We are writing to inform you that your channel was subject to one or more of these DMCA takedown notifications, and that the content identified has been deleted. We recognize that by deleting this content, we are not giving you the option to file a counter-notification or seek a retraction from the rights hold. In consideration of this, we have processed these notifications and are issuing you a one-time warning to give you the chance to learn about copyright law and the tools available to manage the content on your channel.”

Twitch sent the following response to Polygon: “We are incredibly proud of the essential service Twitch has become for so many artists and songwriters, especially during this challenging time. It is crucial that we protect the rights of songwriters, artists and other music industry partners. We continue to develop tools and resources to further educate our creators and empower them with more control over their content while partnering with industry-recognized vendors in the copyright space to help us achieve these goals.”
