What kind of royalty free rights do I need?

Basically what you need is royalty free music, or flexible copyright audio, meaning that you can use the audio, sometimes only under certain conditions, like giving credit to the creator.

Finding audio for your stream that is copyright free, is not easy! Or, at least not easy to be sure. It’s not worth taking chances.  

Because streaming crosses from ‘personal use’ to commercial because you get paid for subs, ads etc, you need to find music and sounds that won’t hit you with a Twitch DMCA notice later. 

Free to use, credits to creator 

If you are not sure how to credit someone, it looks like this.

Twitch is on the radar now for music producers and big companies, so be more careful what you use on stream. Twitch has a 3 strike rule, and with each notice you’ll get a strike. 

Remember Twitch doesn’t want to punish you, they just need to cover their back, as Twitch will be getting hit with the lawsuits.
