GTA RP, with some of his latest livestreams having eclipsed the 20 hour mark. 

However, after logging out of the game and saying that he was about to bring his 11-hour stream to a close on June 13, one cheeky fan decided to fire some shots at summit and it’s fair to say that he didn’t appreciate it. Not one bit. 

Blizzard EntertainmentSummit1g has been streaming World of Warcraft on a regular basis on Twitch.

“We just gotta log out here. Do it tomorrow,” he said, before one user called him a “pussy” for not continuing streaming further into the night. 

After taking note of the their online username, summit went on to roll with the punches and searched for the person who said it on Twitch. “Let’s have a look at your fucking channel real quick, uh?” he said, clearly irritated by what he had been called. “Let’s see how many hours you put into your channel. 

“Right, videos zero. Last fucking game you played, Roblox. Says a lot. You’re doing great,” he continued. “You would stream more if you weren’t such a pussy, but you know that’s fine. That’s just how it goes with you.”

Regular summit viewers will know that reacting in this way to members of the chat is quite out of character for him, but after streaming for so long, clearly he was expecting to be able to end the broadcast without having abuse hurled at him.

He went on to thank people for watching, as usual, before going offline.

JakeNBake hit with DMCA strike for Kanye song in two-year-old Twitch clip

Twitch star Jake “JakeNBake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

JakeNBake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is JakeNBake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

JakeNBake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

JakeNBake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on JakeNBake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned Abramson could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Abramson, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to clear his entire video back-catalog in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

JakeNBake also plans to counter-claim, but admitted he was “scared.”

“My fear is if I counter-claim this, and some computer in China turns around at me and just goes ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you,’ and starts pinging me for everything I’ve ever done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
