Twitch Apologizes for Stopping Dispute Broadcasting on Copyright Claims




Yesterday evening, Twitch suspended a slew of high-profile, part-time or full-time broadcasters, including politicians. Those caught in the snare include speed driver Schchal “Trihex” Jefferson, who remains with podcasters Chapo Trap House, and political pundit David Pakman. This came after an organization claiming to represent CBS released copyright claims on veins involving democratic debates last night in South Carolina. It turns out, this organization was a fraud.

The agency called itself Praxis Legal and told Twitch that it was working for CBS, which broadcast the controversy last night. This is not unusual in the case of copyright claims being taken, Twitch moved to retrieve the allegedly infringing content immediately. Shortly thereafter, the developers spoke, and Jefferson said he did I didn't even use audio or visuals from the debate-He just showed subtitles so that viewers could adapt his comment to the television broadcast.

And yet, Twitch's most popular political developers you did it show partial views of the controversies, Hasan Piker and Steven “Destiny” Bonnell, he added a very swollen banhammer

altogether, perhaps because they are broadcasting outside of Twitch's "political" section.

Things started to get weary when Praxis Political's web presence disappeared. Its website (cached on Google) has disappeared, and its email address has stopped working.

Today, Twitch reinstated the suspended accounts and issued a statement confirming what many had suspected: Praxis Legal Services was false.

"The Twitch investigation has determined that allegations of copyright infringement directed at Praxis Political channels are false," the statement read, initially provided for Deputy and provided Kotaku. "Twitch restores access to each account and removes any strike on the channel associated with the notice, effective immediately. refer to people with false allegations. An investigation is underway as to who is doing the work. "

Kotaku asked Twitch for more information on how he plans to avoid situations like this in the future, but a Twitch spokeswoman did not respond to those questions he answered.

This is not the first time Twitch has moved quickly to throw flowers in a digital slammer for live response to conversations. Last summer, Jefferson, Piker, and Bonnell were all suspended from the job, allegedly because of a copyright claim from CNN, who was broadcasting Democratic interviews at the time. However, in some cases, developers have been able to debrief, which is usually broadcast via official broadcasts free in addition to traditional broadcast networks. While there is no denying that what the broadcasters do is good use, platforms like Twitch and YouTube do not take long to remove content when big companies come knocking, fearing legitimate reaction. As a result, illegal copyright claims have and will continue to be an effective tool for removing and silencing people online.

As Twitch grows into a meeting point of controversial political discourse at times, it is possible for people to continue directing political motives. This is a problem on many levels. When streamers are stopped, their lifestyles are in line. Too many configurations (frequency to three or more), and Twitch makes it endless – or, more appropriately, restricted.

In addition, political debates, at least in theory, are designed to allow the public to make informed decisions about who they vote for. Over the years, technology has revolutionized the way we eat and communicate debates, and live streaming is the latest evolution of that. Ironically, the broadcast will continue to include debates and other major political events in their broadcast, but each time something like this happens, it's hard to imagine that at least a few of them will have no second thoughts.
