Who Gets The Right To Live Stream Games? (The Jimquisition)


The ancient debate over content creation and copyright has flared up again, this time with a wannabe Stadia director claiming Twitch streamers should pay a fee to broadcast gameplay.


It was part of a larger claim that recent DMCA takedowns of Twitch videos are deserved, because apparently it's good when record labels have content scrubbed from the Internet over alleged music rights violations that nobody's been informed about.


Should be fun to tear into that ridiculous assertion, so let's do that. Happy Halloween, etcetera!
