FaZe Clan member Jarvis ‘Jarvis’ Kaye has been banned on Twitch after receiving a DMCA (digital millennium copyright act) takedown.

The popular FaZe Clan Fortnite streamer was banned on Friday June 28, but only found out about it on Monday July , when his brother alerted him that he’d had his account removed after playing copyrighted music on his stream.

Twitch informed Jarvis that his account had been banned on Friday, June 28, explaining that he had been suspended for playing music without clearance on [date}

“Jarvis has been banned on Twitch…” tweeted his brother and fellow FaZe member Frazier ‘Kay’ Kaye. “We’re trying to fix it.”

Usually, Twitch will just mute your VoD after the fact when you listen to copyrighted music, but we have seen outright bans happen in the past.

The most notable example of this is when TSM member Daequan Loco was banned right before the start of Fortnite Friday due to a copyright violation.

How long is Jarvis banned for?

Daequan’s ban was initially just 24-hour suspension, but it was overturned the same day it happened, so he was still able to participate in the tournament.

There was no such luck for Jarvis, as, despite this being his first offense, he too was suspended for 24 hours on Friday, June 28.

Kay confirmed to Dexerto that Jarvis was banned on June 28 but he remains banned despite the deadline being up.

He told Dexerto they are in talks with Twitch right now to potentially get the ban overturned, especially considering it should have been lifted by now.

Jarvis joined FaZe Clan in April and it sure didn’t take long for him to find himself in hot water with Twitch.

We will keep you updated with Jarvis’ ban as more information becomes available.

Twitch streamer mortified after showing his embarrassing search history

A small Twitch streamer was left embarrassed out of his mind after he accidentally revealed his search history during a recent broadcast.

Anyone who has ever streamed on Twitch is probably aware of how easy it can be to leak personal information. Direct messages, emails, files – anything on your computer screen can potentially be seen if you’re not careful.

While most experienced streamers take precautions to prevent sensitive content from being broadcast to the masses, others have to learn the hard way. Such was the case with ‘TisParker’ who revealed some awkward search history.

During a January 19 broadcast, the 20-year-old streamer clicked on the search bar in his web browser before taking a sip of his caffeinated beverage and cleaning his glasses.

Your search history is showing!

As this was going on, the seemingly oblivious streamer didn’t realize his search history was showing up, with the first query being “can you have sex in your car without breaking the law.”

The embarrassing search was spotted by viewers in TisParker’s chat who alerted the streamer.

“Search history, Parker!” he read before realizing what he had done.

He let out a soft gasp, closed the tab, and covered his mouth, clearly mortified by what he had allowed everyone watching to see.

For his part, however, the streamer was a good sport and laughed at his own misfortune. “MonkaS,” he said, referencing the sweaty pepe emote. “This is why we don’t Google stuff.”

Unfortunately, Parker deleted the rest of the VOD so we don’t know what else he had to say about revealing the search history, but judging by his reaction, he will be extra careful from this point on.

Of course, he is hardly the first streamer to show of their search history on stream. As Dexerto previously reported, Overwatch streamer ToxikLlama accidentally showed some awkward YouTube anime searches.

Given the content of both searches, it’s safe to say that although Parker’s was awkward, it could have been a lot worse. Just something to keep in mind for any aspiring streamers out there.
