Ninja disgusted at Twitch after porn stream was promoted on his channel

Twitch began promoting other channels to his former profile page last week, one of which appears to have been streaming pornography, which was captured in screenshots by users on Twitter today. Blevins says that the channel streaming porn had been bumped to the number one spot, and apologized to users who might have seen it. As of the time of this writing, Ninja’s profile page doesn’t display other channels. – Andrew Liptak, The Verge » https://ift.tt/2KtWk8b

Twitch’s subscriber-only streams violate ToS from Valve, Blizzard, and Riot Games

In a post on Reddit […], user justalazygamer pointed out that the new streams seem to violate the Terms outlined by companies including Blizzard, Valve, and Riot Games. Valve says that “you can’t charge users to view or access your videos,” while Riot says that you can “offer subscription-based content while live-streaming game, so long as non-subscribers can still watch the games concurrently.” – Ali Jones, PCGamesN » https://ift.tt/2xn5Hz7

Twitch sues users who posted porn, racism, and more to Artifact stream page

Trolls swamp unused Twitch category with pirated shows and porn

Twitch just learned first-hand about the challenges of moderating live video. Trolls have hijacked the site’s largely unused category for Valve’s Artifact (which previously had few if any streamers) to livestream material that most definitely violated Twitch’s terms of service. Motherboard noted that it started out with memes, but on Memorial Day weekend included pirated Game of Thrones episodes, porn and in one case video from the Christchurch mass shooting. – Jon Fingas, Engadget » https://engt.co/2EEtyhU

Twitch locks down rights to manage Team Liquid sponsorships

Under this agreement, Twitch is the official manager of all Team Liquid sales. This means the Amazon subsidiary can take Team Liquid to brands and make sponsorship deals for its specific content. That’s different than Twitch’s more generic deals for pre-roll ads. This is the first time Twitch has made a direct management deal like this. – Jeff Grubb, VentureBeat » https://ift.tt/2ICx54S
