It's getting funnier on Twitch. Streamers get warnings for clips that have been deleted long ago

There has been a lot of talk lately on Twitch about streamers having to delete their videos and VODs. There is only one problem.

Twitch is currently struggling with a copyright issue that has affected most streamers on the platform. Lots of people have had warnings about playing copyrighted music. As a result, streamers removed their VODs and clips, sometimes going back several years.

Today it turns out that this was not the final solution to the problem. Mainly because the deleted content is still on Twitch’s servers and you can still receive a warning for it.

Warnings for something that is theoretically removed

More and more people are reporting that they are getting DMCA warnings for something that is removed. At least in theory. Since the clips are still on TTV servers, you can get a warning for them.

The situation is quite bizarre and will probably be resolved soon. However, it is not known if and how Twitch will react to the votes of its community. It seems absurd enough to be unrealistic, but it was predictable.

There are tons of sites online that offer access to deleted clips and content that has been posted on Twitch. If someone wants to draw consequences from playing restricted works, he will certainly do his thing.
