[BBC] Twitch sued for £2.1bn over Premier League by Russian firm

Quote:
Russia's third-largest internet company is suing streaming service Twitch for 180bn roubles (£2.1bn) over pirate broadcasts of English Premier League games.

Rambler Group alleges its exclusive broadcasting rights were breached by the service more than 36,000 times between August and November.

It is seeking to permanently ban the Amazon-owned platform in Russia.

Twitch's lawyer has called Rambler's case "unfounded".

Russia is the third-largest user of Twitch, which has more than 15 million daily active users worldwide.

Its terms and conditions state users cannot share content without permission from the copyright owners, including films, television programmes and sports matches.

The streaming giant's lawyer, Julianna Tabastaeva, told Russian-language news website Kommersant Twitch "only provides users with access to the platform and is unable to change the content posted by users, or track possible violations".

She added the company took "all necessary measures to eliminate the violations, despite not receiving any official notification from Rambler".

The Moscow City Court will hear the case on 20 December.

I saw a Russian woman playing and hosting GTA V online version and some single player missions too on Twitch about 3 years ago. That's the extent of my knowledge about Russia's relationship with Twitch.

She was good though. I mean she was personable and looked nice. The comments said she didn't play the game that well.
Edit - Maybe some remember her from that description, forgot her name. Or maybe not, that may fit the description of lots of Russian women hosting/playing GTA V on Twitch. Not that Russian women or women in general can't play the game well.

hmm, i think Rambler tried to bait Twitch on this lawsuit.
instead of reporting copyright violators to Twitch on day-zero, they waited for the event to conclude and accumulate more "copyright infringement" evidence and sue Twitch instead.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Isn't this immaterial with the new Russian internet laws going live in January?

I'd require the Russian repeater company to pony up identification and evidence for every pirate streamer.

ladies everywhere making mad money off of little kids using parent's credit cards, without ever actually getting naked. it's hilarious, and perfect. True redistribution of wealth, imo. Rich via parents children funneling money to likely much less fortunate, thus deserving, twitch streamers.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
