Russian caster Rustam “Adekvat” Mavlutov received a warning about the violation of the DMCA from the tournament operator Perfect World. The strike was issued during his stream of the Chinese Closed Qualifiers for the DPC. Mavlutov reported this in Telegram.
Previously, Adekvat repeatedly streamed matches of Chinese leagues, but never had any problems. In 2020, Valve officially allowed all third-party streamers to broadcast from official tournaments if they comply with the minimum latency rule, and do not use the stream for commercial purposes.
