Dexerto, an esports news site has reported that Dragonforce guitarist Herman Li has been banned from Twitch.
For privacy reasons, Twitch will not publicly comment on the reasons for the ban, but Dexerto has a feeling they know what happened.
“Speculation… is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA [Digital Millennium Copyright Act] strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.”
At the time of this article, Li has no additional information as to what actually caused the ban. But in the meantime, he is taking his live streams over to YouTube!
He will be live streaming on Dragonforce’s channel at 4pm/EST today!
