Twitch hit with another wave of DMCA takedowns

Big Music has once again got it out for Twitch streamers as another wave of DMCA takedowns have hit exclusively VODs, mostly targeted at those playing music in the background of their streams.

Twitch sent out a warning email to its creators last week, informing them that around 1,000 individual claims had been received from a variety of music publishers (thanks, Kotaku). Twitch went on to explain that they believe music industry bigwigs are using “automated tools to scan and identify copyrighted music in creators’ VODs and Clips,” which apparently could spell “further notices” in the near future.
