In the past week, Ludwig has made title when he became the latest of Twitch’s biggest stars to move to YouTube. However, just days after this transition, Ludwig was restricted from streaming on the platform.
While Ludwig was watching a live video with about 25,000 viewers, his stream abruptly ended. People who tried to view the stream received an error saying the stream was unavailable and had been “suspended for a policy violation”. As soon as this was noticed, Ludwig ended his live event and hasn’t streamed since.
Shortly after his stream ended, Ludwig uploaded a video to his second channel explaining why he was restricted from streaming on YouTube. He saw the humor in the situation and explained during a live stream that he was watching the 50 “classic” videos on the platform and came across Baby Shark, the children’s song.
“I listened to a few seconds of Baby Shark. I’m pretty sure the leadership of the company that owns Baby Shark was like an iron fist to YouTube, and so they took me down,” said Ludwig. “Obviously the DMCA is going to be more worrisome than I initially imagined. I think what will happen is because of YouTube’s strong copyright ID system, they will let me play copyrighted content, then they will flag it, they will monetize the live stream and we just took it apart. Classic revenue sharing. ”
Ludwig explained that the situation will be a learning experience and that he hopes to be back live on the stream by the end of the week. For now, you can still watch videos on Ludwig’s channel, but you probably won’t see him live before your eyes.
