In case you missed it, Ludwig Ahgren left Twitch for YouTube just a little while ago. The content creator was being courted by both entertainment platforms until he had to flip a coin because the decision was such a tough one. Though the coin landed on Twitch, YouTube stepped up their offer one last time to beat Amazon's livestreaming platform. However, since Ludwig’s arrival on Google’s video-sharing website, he’s been banned not once but twice - ouch.
Ludwig was banned from YouTube just days after coming to the platform. His stream was taken down for “policy violations” - or in other words, he had a DMCA takedown notice applied while he was on stream. He originally explained: “What happened was I was trying to look at the top fifty greatest vintage YouTube videos. Along the way, I ended up listening to a few seconds of Baby Shark, which… I won’t dare listen to again. I’m pretty sure the corporate overlords that own Baby Shark have an iron fist on YouTube, and so they took me down.”

Okay so, don’t use copyrighted material on stream then. Great tip. Except, it happened again. The Livestream Fails subreddit has a clip of the moment where Ludwig is taken down by policy violations yet again for watching content on stream that isn’t his. It’s unfortunate, and unlucky even, but it seems that it’s going to be the way life is for the variety streamer on this platform.
Watching other content on stream is a massive source of entertainment for content creators. Sometimes when you’re live for hours and hours a day, you can’t be playing a game for that whole time. You’d sometimes be better off watching old episodes of shows or creating reaction content of other sorts. However it seems this is far more difficult on YouTube than it is on Twitch, or at least that’s what it seems with Ludwig’s two bans in a week. We wonder if he thinks he’s made the right move now.
