Shame I liked Twitch, and it works well with Raptor, but I don't want anything to do with Amazon on their labour and tax avoidance records.

I don't want anything to do with amazon for their pro-taxation, anti-competition record lol.

Good. Just means that Google won't ruin Twitch.

I also heard folks say that there was muting of Twitch staff's own material.

But will they allow gamers to stream while playing music?

The current fiasco going on is completely ape shit, as far as watching previous streams is concern. And the fact that Twitch made the change with anticipating being bought by Google, will Amazon maintain the recent set standard anyhow?

Live streams won't be affect by the copyright scans. It only hapends for the archived videos.

Competition is good and I'm curious to see google rebound with another attempt in this sector.
