After revealing some controversial changes to streaming website Twitch yesterday that included removing past broadcasts and slapping any copyrighted in-game music or audio with a 30-minute mute, CEO of the streaming website Emmet Shear has taken to Reddit's Ask Me Anything to clear up a bit of the controversy, though also doubling down on keeping the new Content ID system.

In the Reddit AMA, Shear revealed that in-game music getting muted was a mistake, even with it being mentioned in the original blog's reveal of the new "service". Shear also said that the target of the mass muting of archived streams was music played in the background that was not licensed ("ambient music"). He also acknowledged in the thread that some accidental mutings occurred and that they are looking into fixing that problem. He acknowledged that it was also probably a bad idea to roll out all of this stuff without first announcing it to the community.

"We have absolutely no intention of flagging songs due to original in-game music," he wrote in response to a question about content id. "If that's happening (and it appears it is), it's a problem and we will investigate and try to fix it."

As to why Twitch is doing all this? "Because we care about you and your viewers," Shear revealed. "We want every broadcaster on Twitch to be protected from potential liability. No matter how remote you might feel the issue is, we aren't willing to run the risk someone's life gets ruined over this." Check out the entire AMA for the full discussion, including all of Shear's responses.
