Twitch, the increasingly popular platform for streaming electronic game sessions, owned by Amazon, does not escape the claims made by the various copyright entities when they observe the use of some of their copyrighted material in the transmissions of users through their respective channels.

So the platform wants to put facilities to the so-called streamers to avoid giving rise to the extreme of having to remove channels that are affected by the continuous removal requests received for copyright infringement.

To address the historical problems of the use of copyrighted content, the company has decided to make it easier for streamers to remove channels that are affected by continuous requests for copyright infringement.

According to an email that the platform has sent to streamers, the email informs them of new tools that will arrive throughout the second half of this year, according to the roadmap, to give streamers more control when it comes to managing their content.

With them, streamers will not only be able to see in their inboxes the requests received by the DMCA for the removal of content on their respective channels, but also the number of copyright warnings they have also received in this regard.

If necessary, streamers will be able to remove their posts individually, in batches of 20 at a time, or all existing posts at once, thus avoiding the extreme of having to see their channels suspended indefinitely.

The same email makes it clear that the arrival of these tools is a direct result of the wave of Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown requests streamers received last year.

These tools will give streamers more control when it comes to being forced to manage the content of their channels according to the requests and warnings received, for which they will even have various methods of content management to be able to carry out the removal of those that may jeopardize the continuity of their respective channels.

What is worth asking is why all these tools have not been brought in the past, coming now when the competition is greater, where any self-respecting platform will try to retain its creators and encourage the arrival of new ones who bring more value with their content to it.
