Twitch blasts streamers with vague, unhelpful DMCA takedown emails

Riiiiight, Twitch.

In the meantime, however, Twitch’s advice to streamers is unhelpful, to say the least. Not only do users have no way to know which of their clips were flagged, but Twitch’s best advice seems to be “delete everything.”

“To avoid receiving a DMCA takedown notification for the recorded content that remains on your channel, we recommend you take the following actions,” Twitch wrote in the emails. “Review your Clips, VODs, and any other content in your Creator Dashboard and delete anything that includes unlicensed copyrighted material. If you are unsure about the contents of your archive, you can delete all of it.”
