You can easily help out the artists there too by donating once in a while or straight up subscribing to one of those services.
Due to the policies being enacted by Twitch, has this made you re-think who you stream with?
The intended purpose of copyright is to give an incentive to create content. But if you can't turn a profit in the first 2 decades then tough, your content wasn't very good. But the larger purpose of having a lengthy copyright is not to incentivize content, but amass a huge library that in aggregate can still be profited from long after the original artists have likely moved on to other projects.
The obvious downside is that there would be that financing of content would be disrupted; there wouldn't be the willingness to sink costs upfront if there wasn't a chance for a lifetime of income from the copyright. But I believe that this discourages content since content creating companies become overly dependent on their catalog of content rather than create new material. I understand that making Friends and Seinfeld, along with the Beatles and Notorious B.I.G.'s entire discography public domain would be the upside, but what major downside would there be if the copyright would be limited... keep reading on reddit ➡
You can use completely free of copyright infringements and free to use however you like :)
The genre is mainly hip-hop:
Hi everyone! The other day I got a passive-aggressive favorite from someone named Boy Mom LLC on Etsy. Their "page" is literally just this wall of text about how if they favorited you, you're infringing on their copyright and they'll report you if you don't take it down. Seriously, that is how this person spends their time, which whatever, you do you! But.... the listings they're favoriting say "Boy Mama" or "Mama to Boys". Their wall of text claims that they "own" it because it's similar to Boy Mom.
Is this accurate? I understand they bought boy mom, but how can they own any reiteration of it? Is this worth bringing up to a lawyer? It's not even a popular selling product, but something about this REALLY bothered me.
I uploaded 22 songs I have produced to Soundcloud. Never released by any record label and free to reproduce in streams and free to use in videos, games, movies or any commercial project under the terms of Creative Commons (more info on each song). Electronica and House genres mainly. I hope you enjoy it.

Please leave a short comment on how you feel as a streamer or user of twitch. This can also extend to youtube and other content platforms.
i dont know if its right, but will delete if its a bad idea to do this
for music artists that have not signed with a record label and care to help streamers get some music, please post your Bandcamp/Soundcloud where they can get your music from
Edit: please keep this topic clean and for people who want to share music
First of all, I apologize that this is a Google translation. Unfortunately, I don't understand English. However, I wrote it because I needed to convey the correct information. I don't know how everyone in the English-speaking world acts as a fan, but I thought that I could spread it here, so I came to tell you. It may be an agenda that has already been discussed, but I think many people do not know it. I will attach Japanese, so if you understand, I would like you to supplement. Please understand that there may be funny sentences in order to make the translation as normal as possible.
Yesterday, there was a Subnautica broadcast on Korone. The broadcast had a lot of dislikes, so many English-speaking people were confused for no reason. This is definitely a copyright issue, but it's a bit complicated.
It started a week ago when an official from another Vtuber company, Ichikara (you can tell if it's Nijisanji), announced a licensing agreement for Nintendo's copyrighted works. Four com... keep reading on reddit ➡
TL;DR - As a content creator, you (not Twitch) are responsible for vetting the material you're deciding to use on your broadcast.
There's some waves being made online with Twitch broadcasters getting DMCA takedowns for copyright and thought to pull together some info. Rather than regurgitate what's been written, I'd rather summarize and point to the excellent original posts already submitted to r/Twitch.
>Can I use [insert copyrighted material] on my stream?
Do you have the rights to use it? Are you using the copyrighted material in a Fair Use manner? If you answered "No" to either of those, you probably shouldn't be using it. A couple months ago, u/FruitbatsTTV (a lawyer and a fellow broadcaster) submitted a tool to help people think about if what they're doing is consider... keep reading on reddit ➡
For the past year or so, I've been designing and writing an RPG based on the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender. The game was originally meant for just me and a couple of my friends, but I've become pretty proud of it and want to share it online. This has raised the question of copyright, a topic which I know nothing about. I really don't want to change the game to a more copyright-friendly version, as I feel the core appeal is its accurate portrayal of the powers in the show.So, does anyone have experience with/has anyone ever seen a fan-made RPG being ignored/endorsed by the copyright-holders, despite being published online?
Edit: Thanks for all the suggestions and ideas. I'm gonna write to Viacom to see if they're willing to license the IP. If not, I'm probably just gonna have to remove all proper nouns and such.
It really ruin the video that you already uploaded and had to change its audio with youtube free music studio that really out of synchronization with the video. Some channel that making copyright free music will make a deal with other studio or sold their music and that making you get copyright claim.
Just sat down to watch the latest podcast episode and they start by talking on the DMCA/Copyright issue plaguing twitch right now...but they get a lot wrong/gloss over a few key issues. (definitely not bashing them, more sympathizing with their plight)
I'll never get this info to them, but writing it down here is the closest I'll get and it will put my mind at ease. Its long, its got boring legal stuff in it, and its probably riddled with spelling mistakes but it might help some people understand the basics of copyright and the internet.
I've worked in the music/music production world for quite some time now and know a fair bit about fair use copyright from my time writing music for the kind of people who make these DMCA claims.
I'M NOT A LAWYER! but i've dealt with these issues a lot in the past.
I short: It's a stupidly convoluted and confusing aspect of law that's so odd and ever changing that there are lawyers who deal exclusively with this sector of law for their entire live... keep reading on reddit ➡
i'm not very law savvy, but I uploaded a beat on youtube a while ago, and now I found out i have a copyright claim on it from some record label, which used my beat without ever contacting me. It even got D smoke on the song, I'm wondering what I should do, since i didn't get any production credits on the song or anything. In the bio I clearly indicate to contact me for the use of the beat. I didn't put any tags on it or anything (kinda ruins a lot of beats but i might start to now).
this is my beat
and this is the song he used it on
This is my most popular beat to date, I can't even monenatize on youtube yet but i dont want to have copyright claims on my beats and I find it whack someone would use it without even contacting me. What do you guys think I should do? He also put the song out on streaming services without... keep reading on reddit ➡
If she receives a third her entire channel will be taken down. They are currently trying to delete all VODs and clips to try to prevent a third one.
If you have created clips from her stream please delete them! You can download them before doing so, but do it. It would be helping her out a lot!
I just started Potomac and I heard “The Waiting Room” group dance music. On VPR I’ve heard Electricity and too many of Kenzie’s solo songs to count. “Party Party Party” has been in every franchise I’m sure of it. I think I heard “Sassy Dolls” on Beverly Hills?? Really brings me back, I miss OG dance mom days!
So basically, I was thinking of inviting the local neighbors, this summer, over to watch a movie or two on a projector screen (a large sheet?) placed on the outside of our garage.
I think it would be a fun event.. Bring a lawn chair or two, we'll plan for social distancing.. Maybe rent a port-a-potty and a popcorn machine.
What films would you recommend?
Just something I was thinking of doing this summer.. I understand there are copyright laws, so I don't want to get into trouble.
My understanding is that Australia has the life+70 rule for works. Orwell died 1950. Can I set my students an Orwell novel without having to buy 25 copies (either by printing it for them, or providing a digital copy)?
Especially if you sell it or make prints from it.
Would appreciate thoughts and inputs
Basicly if you "get caught" Download and distribute "Manga" you get jail for 2 years. Anyone who work are realate to "manga Scanlation and distribution" also affected. That mean to if you run [email protected] in japan shore is ilegal.
So in future i guest everyone must prepared security & countermeasure. We don't know are they really will enforce fully this law but sure there will be effect on community.
This is completely ridiculous.
Edit: It looks like both claims have been lifted. Still shouldn't have happened in the first place.
