It is our policy to respond to clear notices of claimed copyright infringement that fully comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. In addition, we will promptly terminate with or without notice the accounts of those determined by us to be “repeat infringers”.
Please note that under 17 U.S.C. Section 512(f), any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing, or that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, may be subject to liability. Twitch may, at its discretion, share a copy of your notification or counter-notification with third parties (this may include sharing the information with the account holder engaged in the allegedly infringing activity or for publication).
Notification of Infringement
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof, and you believe that material transmitted or hosted on our service infringes your copyrights, then you may submit a written notification of claimed infringement by filling out our webform located at twitch.tv/copyright-claims.

If you wish to retract your claimed copyright infringement notice, please email firstname.lastname@example.org from the same email address as your original notification. Note that we cannot process retractions that are sent from a different email address. Your retraction must include the following:
