logo: Twitch

This isn’t entirely new, and won’t affect many beyond those players who have signed a contract to monetize their livestreams. Twitch already had a clause preventing partners from using rival services (such as hitbox or standard YouTube) for gaming broadcasts, but doesn’t prohibit the uploading of recorded clips to “static” video sites. – Matt Kamen, WIRED UK
