Twitch has reached an agreement with the music industry, but the anchor still cannot use copyrighted songs

After months of escalating disputes between Twitch and the music industry, the streaming platform today announced that it has reached an agreement with the National Music Publishers Association to “establish a fruitful partnership between services and music publishers “. The details are not yet clear, but Twitch stated that the new deal “paves the way for the economics of the new game model to increase the popularity and revenue of songwriters.”

“Twitch will provide new opportunities for music publishers, and they will get an opt-in agreement that allows future collaborations to bring new aspects to the gaming experience and the exposure of songwriters,” it said. “These collaborations will create a more dynamic and expansive environment for people to discover, watch and interact with songwriters.”
