Twitch Partners With Warner Music

Last week, Twitch announced a new partnership with the National Music Publishers Association (NMPA), and revealed a new process for record labels to report use of their copyrighted music. The news didn’t have any immediate effects on the ongoing DMCA disaster on Twitch.

This week, Twitch signed another agreement, this time with Warner Music Group, which will allow the music publisher to also access this new system. Unfortunately, just like last week’s news, this agreement doesn’t mean streamers will be able to use Warner-owned music in their shows, and they could still face DMCA takedowns should Warner music appear (such as part of games) in their streams.

Twitch called the new reporting process more “flexible and forgiving,” though didn’t specify what that actually means. Nevertheless, the streaming service knows there are a lot of questions surrounding this tool and it promised to elaborate on what these changes mean soon.
