Today at 9AM PST/12PM EST Twitch held a conversation between two members of the German Government, Tiemo Wolken, and Julia Reda, and Twitch Streamers P4wnyhof and Mantrouse. The focal point of this live stream was to discuss the change to the EU’s Article 13.
Currently, Streamers on sites such as Youtube, Twitch, and Mixer, streamers are liable to make sure that their content does not break any copyright laws. With the implementation of Article 13, the sites themselves would be liable for any copyright infringements on their platform.
The government representatives and streamers discussed why Article 13 was introduced and how it will affect streamers and streaming platforms. The discussion and Mario Kart gameplay can be viewed now at https://www.twitch.tv/videos/387055907.
