Cyberpunk 2077: Streamers face DMCA strikes even in copyright-free mode

Cyberpunk 2077: Streamers face DMCA strikes even in copyright-free mode

Cyberpunk 2077 added a copyright-free mode to the game, but streamers can still receive DMCA strikes from just playing the game on Twitch.

Cyberpunk 2077: Streamers face DMCA strikes even in copyright-free mode

While Cyberpunk 2077 reached over one million unique viewers on Twitch earlier today, problems with the music are getting in the spotlight.

CD Projekt Red introduced a new "Copyright-free mode" aimed at avoiding any DMCA strikes for players streaming the game. This mode basically changes the music you can hear from the radio, bars, or missions for copyright-free music.

Or at least, should.

As the embargo lifted, the official Twitter account of the game reported a problem with the copyright-free mode.

Two songs played during braindance — something that already made players quite unhappy due to lack of possible epileptic seizure warning — could cause streamers to get a DMCA warning on their channels, even with the copyright-free mode enabled.

As many streamers have already shared hours of the game on Twitch prior to this warning, this mistake could quickly become a massive issue.
