Twitch implements YouTube-like system for blocking copyrighted audio

Twitch users now need to be more vigilant about the music they play while making gameplay videos.


Twitch is now scanning videos for unauthorized third-party audio — in-game and ambient music — and automatically muting that content.


In an announcement, Twitch says it has partnered with software company Audible Magic, which works with the music industry, "to scan past and future videos for music owned or controlled by" its clients. If that scan identifies a recorded video that infringes upon a copyright claim, the video's audio will be muted for a 30-minute block in which that song appears.
