Dr Disrespect Throws Shade At Twitch Amid DMCA Takedown Backlash

Published

on

Dr Disrespect takes the opportunity to throw shade at Twitch after it receives major backlash from tightening the reins on its music guidelines.

After a flurry of Twitch streamers reported they had received DMCA takedown notices, ex-Twitch superstar Dr Disrespect took the opportunity to throw shade at his former streaming platform. Dr Disrespect was permanently banned from Twitch in June of this year and has since fired multiple shots at the platform via social media or on his stream, which is now on YouTube.

Twitch has reportedly received various DMCA complaints regarding copyrighted music from 2017 to 2019 that streamers play during their live broadcasts. Twitch tweeted that it would be taking these complaints seriously and its guidelines for music would change so streamers can make more informed decisions before choosing what to play on stream. As a result of these revamped guidelines, Twitch chose to delete streamers’ content without warning if any part of it contained copyrighted music. Thousands of streamers, some of whom no longer even use Twitch, reported emails from the site informing them that their content had been deleted.

Of course, no one was happy with Twitch’s rash decision making, and for the umpteenth time this year, Twitch’s actions garnered an overwhelmingly negative response from its community. The term “DMCA” made the trending page on Twitter, and various music artists began to post statements in response stating that their music could be played on Twitch streams without fear of a DMCA takedown. Dr Disrespect also responded to the situation by posting a link to a fan-made synthwave track featuring the streamer’s vocals with the caption, “Play anywhere, on any platform… strike free.”

The track, “Doctor D,” is from the artist VHS Glitch and uses vocal samples from Dr Disrespect’s stream while he was on Twitch. However, it is odd that Dr Disrespect didn’t choose to post any of his own tracks. Earlier this year, Dr Disrespect released three singles featuring ’80s synths and lyrics pointed at Twitch following his ban. This could mean that, while Dr Disrespect doesn’t own the rights to “Doctor D,” he doesn’t intend to allow Twitch streamers to use his own music on their streams.

The Dr Disrespect hits in question are “Alleyways,” “Red Skies,” and “Eclipse” which are surprisingly catchy. It would be humorous if Dr Disrespect did enact DMCA takedowns of content on Twitch that features his vocal prowess. On the other hand, allowing streamers on Twitch to freely advertise Dr Disrespect’s YouTube channel through his music may not be a bad idea either.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
