Since the recent Twitch copyright crackdown, more of you have been choosing my music for your streams – and that’s great! However, today I’ve received reports of claims against streams using particular library tracks – and so I wanted to highlight which tracks are affected, and what’s being done about it.
The tracks affected by these claims are the following:
- The Black Waltz
- Machinery of the Stars
- A New Year
- Growing Up
- Life Is
These tracks were released as part of a Silva Screen co-release, under the proviso that none of the tracks would enter audio fingerprinting services, like the ones used by Twitch and YouTube to identify copyrighted music. Sadly, this wasn’t the case. In the past, we’ve removed the content from content ID services on YouTube and Facebook, but I was unaware that the problem also extended to Twitch.
Silva Screen has been notified, and they have confirmed that they will work with their distributor to resolve the issue. In the meantime, I recommend that you avoid using these particular tracks on stream. All other tracks in the library are unaffected by this issue, and are fine to use on Twitch.
Thanks for your patience and support, and I will keep you updated on any progress!
