How is this going to work for the twitch broadcasters who earn income doing this? Will they eventually be paying DICE,Blizzard,Ubisoft, etc... royalty fees since they are making money by streaming their game content?
I believe the reason gamers migrated to twitch was because of the constant copyright claims and now the "freedom" entity is getting dragged back into the current unstable system. Not a lawyer so don't really know what is a valid claim and what isn't. But pretty sure what is shown was already paid for and whats being monetized is the players efforts.
I'm pretty sure you can already upload to youtube from twitch directly but I've never used the "Upload" button myself. This is more than likely going to lead to more content ID garbage and likely abandonment of twitch if it does.
