Popular selection banner Jeremy “Camouflaged Salute” Wang has actually been outlawed from Twitch, after seeing the anime Fatality Note on Stream. The restriction came down on Monday evening.
While the factor for the restriction is not formally validated, it’s most likely an outcome of a DMCA copyright strike passed on to Shiver by the legal rights owners of the anime. The restriction seems comparable to the one released to Imane “Pokimane” Anys on Friday evening. Anys, that streams for Offline television, the exact same streaming team as Wang, got a DMCA issue while streaming Character: The Last Airbender and also was outlawed reside on stream too.
Nevertheless, Anys’ penalty wasn’t as well severe. The suspension of her network just lasted two days, according to her tweets, prior to it was restored on-line. Anys after that went cope with a 12-hour lengthy stream on Monday early morning, the day after she obtained her account back, and also balanced around 27,000 visitors for a lot of the stream. Based upon numbers from Twitchtracker, that’s around 6,000 greater than she has actually balanced over the last month.
While the scenarios absolutely appear comparable, it’s still vague if Wang’s network will certainly be back up in the exact same timespan as Anys’ network. Wang himself has not supplied a main talk about the restriction, rather tweeting, “they truly couldn’t have waited 20 more minutes huh?”

Many Twitch streamers over the last few months have actually been watching and reacting to copyrighted content in what streamers are calling the “TV meta.” While this meta has garnered many streamers impressive viewer numbers, the threat of DMCA strikes from the original owners of the shows was always looming. And with a second ban, it appears even more could be on the way if streamers continue to broadcast various copyrighted content.
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
Update: Wang has tweeted more information about his ban, suggesting that it’s likely a month-long suspension.
