Maincast commentator Vitaly “v1lat” Volochai reminded that all unofficial streamers of Dota Pro Circuit 2021 matches must comply with the rules of broadcasts from tournament operators. In particular, they are forbidden to make any advertising during the broadcasts. Volochai tweeted about it (Twitter).
“Today, the first wave of channel bans on Twitch flew by, those streamers who broadcast matches of different DPC leagues with violations of the rules. Advertising, in any form, banners, voice, pop-up, websites, and so on are prohibited. It's written in black and white. What's so hard about that?”
Earlier, Russian commentatorRustam “Adekvat” Mavlutov received a warning about the violation of the DMCA from the tournament organizer Perfect World. The strike was issued during the broadcast of the Chinese closed qualifiers. Commentator Vladislav “Kvyzee” Kovalchuk also received a similar strike.
