I took advice from Twitch and mute my Rocksmith. You also get a more realistic sweaty metal head experience! pic.twitter.com/74iAmdNHK5November 12, 2020
Since October, Twitch has been deleting large amounts of videos due to copyright claims, leaving affected broadcasters with no means to respond or issue counter-claims. Twitch explained at the end The number of DMCA notices he receives from major record companies has increased, from “less than 50” each year to “thousands” starting in May. The recommendation for live broadcasters was to play games with the music muted, which is clearly not a good advice when it comes to rhythm games, or games that don’t have the option to mute the music separately from the other sound.
at the same time, Videos are muted on some streaming devices due to sound effects, With prompts via Audible Magic automatic content recognition software. These allegations can be challenged, but it remains frustrating for those affected by the content identifier software that cannot distinguish between copyrighted sound and grandfather clock chime noise in a horror game.
In response, broadcasters were protesting by playing games with the audio completely turned off to highlight the absurdity of the situation, with some using the hashtag. #DMCAsoundoff. Watching Rocksmith players silently scream and nod with songs that no one can hear highlights the problem while still enjoying their viewers, as does hearing them improvise their own sound effects for games like Resident Evil 2
