Follow up to my other post about Nintendo filing a phantom hourglass copyright as it seems they've also filed one for Wind Waker. It appears to be increasingly likely that we might get an anniversary collection of some sorts as Kelios speculates in a reply to this tweet.
Normally I don't think copyrights mean all too much but I think the timing of these two trademarks is a little more than convenience. Let me know what y'all think!
The article implies it may be, but my personal opinion is that probably isn’t. That being said, I can see an argument for both sides - the police are doing it knowing that the person will either have to scrub the music out of the video (which most people won’t know how to do) or not share it.
That being said, you don’t have a constitutional right to share whatever you want on social media without other people playing audio in the background - and wouldn’t the police have a right to play music if they want? Or are their rights abridged during the time that they are on duty and acting as agents of the state. However, it’s a little tricky because it seems like the intent behind what the police are doing is to prevent it from being shared, so maybe I’m wrong. The activists certainly seem to think so, saying “This is a form of assaulting free speech.”
What do you all think?
As many of you may already be aware, a new bill has been passed by Congress that cracks down on DMCA Copyright claims for livestreams, with streamers potentially facing felony charges from livestreaming copyrighted content. Examples of this include new music, certain YouTube videos, or anime.
In order to help protect the Twitch community, I decided to quit my job in order to do something to help.
I made a hub called Tenami that seamlessly syncs any Crunchyroll, Netflix, or YouTube video directly to your Twitch stream for your audience to watch along. You can try it out here:
Streamers can now watch whatever they want automatically in sync with viewers, without getting copyright strikes. Through Tenami, both the live streamer as well as video provider (i.e. Netflix) will be given viewership for the content.
As a streamer, you simply log into your Twitch account, select “Host Lobby” in the top right, and copy in the URL of the video you would like to watch.
Next, when viewers join your Twitch stream inside of the Tenami hub, both the content that you are currently watching as well as the stream itself will be displayed like this.
Tenami ensures that all viewers are watching the content legally from the source, and fully protects Twitch streamers from DMCA copyright claims – simply follow Step 4 of Twitch’s instructions for Watch Parties. In addition, Tenami also doubles as a Twitch viewer with integrated BetterTTV and FrankerFaceZ as well as a watch party hub for private viewings.
I have created a video demonstrating how to use Tenami, however please note that it is super cringy as I have never made a YouTube video before (link).
We have some awesome new features coming out, and I’d love to hear your feedback! Coming soon we will have HBO Max, Tenami Mobile, and support for Tenami YouTube VODs as well – allowing you to rewatch previously recorded reaction videos with full integration.
Please feel free to ask any questions and I will be happy to answer them. I hope that Tenami helps livestreaming communities thrive and brings the community closer together through watch anime/movies together online!
Accidentally locked the thread by posting the example twitch stream, however It has since been unlocked!
It looks like the Diamond Cobra vs. The White Fox Best of the Worst episode was copyright claimed by a company called ONErpm Light. Does anybody know if this company has any connection to Deaundra, or is it just a fraudulent claim?
Over the years I've had to deal with people stealing my product photos 1000s of times. It's been such a pain, and very discouraging. My company makes furniture. I photograph it, put it online, sell, and manufacture it. Well a couple weeks ago I got sick of the image theft, and started doing something about it.
Hopefully I'll be getting some financial compensation for all of these cases. Pixsy and Copytrack seem to be hard at work right now for me, and it's free. They get paid from the damages they recover. And I have over 1000 images copyrighted in the US. Going to also hire a lawyer for 4 people in the US that stole my photos so they can be more active on the case. And hiring a 4th attorney to go after Alibaba. They have stolen 1000s of my images.
Just thought I'd share this, as I finally feel like there is going to be some justice.
