with all the recent european laws about the websites and such.. i wanted to ask,
If i record a match in an online game and after embarrassingly annihilate the other team, and post the link for my channel in the end, making people realize they where being recorded without their concern.. (they get mad and say it is unfair and etc)
can a player complain to the twitch about he was not aware that he was being recorded and ask twitch to take down that video?

I don't know, but really, it shouldn't be about the law. It should be about respecting your peers' wishes.

If somebody who's in it asks you to take it down or censor them out, don't be a dick and just do it. Don't have to wait for the law to interfere.

They can ask twitch, and twitch might do it. Might not. Legally i doubt there's been anything like this brought up so fact of the matter is nobody knows. Two arguments could be made for allowing it. Character isn't person. So even if the person has privacy their character does not. (If it includes voice chat that's a different story) And if it's a public random game then it should be considered the same as a recording on the middle of the street.
