If you’re a streamer, or watch Twitch streamers, you’ll know that DMCA strikes are a common issue for anyone that plays games that contain licensed music.

Perhaps the goofiest instance of streaming platforms versus the music industry came fairly recently, when Twitch was forced to edit Metallica’s BlizzConline show to avoid a DMCA strike.
“These collaborations will create an even more dynamic and expansive environment for people to discover, watch, and interact with songwriters.”
