A Sign Of The Times

The audio options in Quantum Break.
The audio options in Quantum Break.

The option to disable copyrighted music in a major video game would have been unthinkable or at least seemed irrelevant years ago. Now it’s in a major Xbox One release like Quantum Break, as seen here. This will likely become increasingly common as game makers want gamers to be able to stream without fear of overly aggressive music copyright hawks. Imagine this for Grand Theft Auto VI!

The takedowns are insane... I had 2 videos of my kid on youtube... just running around doing stupid 3 year old stuff, they were public but unlisted so my family could watch it... in the background were some nursery rhyme CDs. One video got pulled for copyrighted content, the other one got flagged but approved by the copyright holder.
