Current status of Twitch: The official Twitch Gaming channel interrupted the live Metallica concert and played 8bit folk music to avoid DMCA pic.twitter.com/sCn56So8Ee

Twitch does not appear to have the proper rights to allow music to be played on its channel. Fortunately, the concert and music played as expected in other Twitch channels such as Blizzard’s own channel and the official BlizzCon live broadcast on YouTube.
The removal of the DMCA is a huge problem for Twitch live streaming. Twitch even admits that it has a poor ability to deal with this situation and promises to introduce better tools.
In addition to this interesting moment, BlizzCon 2021 also provided some major news and revelations, including the resurrection of “Diablo 2”, the Rogue category of “Diablo 4”, 55 new “Overwatch 2” details, and more.At the time of writing, Day 2 of BlizzCon is underway, and you can catch up with all the best announcements in the BlizzCon 2021 roundup.
