Article 13 is going to fuck Twitch incredibly hard, you won't be able to stream nor watch from the EU whatsoever, what's so surprising about them trying to stop it?

I was never quite sure about this, but is playing/streaming games copyright infringement? And I think Big Companies like ESL/FACEIT/etc. will still be able to stream.

"Since Article 13 places platforms in the direct line of fire, it will force services like YouTube and Twitch to impose strict filters and limitations on European users. Twitch streamers who live in Europe will be severely limited in what they can stream. According to the letter from Shear, the constraints Article 13 places on streamers means “content would be much more difficult to publish, including commentary, criticism, fan works, and parodies.” "Right now, most video services scan for copyright infringement after a stream has ended or a video has been uploaded. With Article 13, services will have to scan for infringement live during streams or have content creators prove they own their content before they even turn on their webcam. Streamers living outside of Europe will have to prove they own the rights to publish if they don’t want their channel blocked in European countries." - Streaming games is still allowed (AFAIK) but you won't be able to stream copyrighted music, so..

But what about games? I mean, if I bought it, I am the owner of the game. Do I need full rights from the studio? Same with having a Nike-Hoodie in your video/stream, do I have to be Nike-Ceo or what? Also, wont a lot of companies losebmoney because they cant advertise anything anymore? And the blockade cant block VPNs, otherwise they make a law, that makes them illegal.

Read the edit too late, my bad Article 13 is still stupid
2019-03-21 06:56
Pretty sure that the rules are going to be (almost) the same as Youtube's current ones, so you can still wear a nike hoodie on stream and you can stream games, etc. A lot of companies will lose money, yes, and they can't really do anything about VPN's, but unless you can prove to be located outside the EU, you still won't be able to stream without their rules applied.

Obviously Article 13 is horrible, but Twitch broadcasting their political opinions on the front page of their site is the the last thing anybody wants. Dumb idea, if more company start picking this up we're fucked.

I mean, it does directly affect them as a business. Would Europeans be able to stream games in an Article 13 world? If not, Twitch is going to get hurt.

Why not make people aware that such thing exists and how it would affect them instead of referring to it as "bad"? Sounds like a 12 year old signed off on this and wrote it.

They will lose a lot of revenue if it passes.
