Iranian social media has been filled with celebratory posts since the sudden un-blocking of Soundcloud and Spotify music streaming services on October Iranian tech news site Digiato reported the news on 18 October, describing the change as a great opportunity for Iran's music community. The change doesn't bring much value for would-be Spotify users, who are still unable to register with the website, due to Spotify's internal corporate rules, which explicitly prohibit Iranians from using its services. The company has never officially explained the reason behind this rule. On a Spotify community forum, one user complained that his access was recently blocked, even though his subscription came from the US. The government has made no comment on why these music platforms are suddenly accessible. Some Iranians have interpreted this silence to mean that this unblocking was a mistake by Iran's censors. Others interpreted the move as a deliberate effort to loosen restrictions on internet content.

Amazon-owned live streaming platform Twitch has become an increasingly useful tool for artists looking to reach their fans in the absence of live music during the COVID quarantine. Meanwhile, as Twitch attracts more and more viewers multiple millions of them , rightsholders appear to be getting increasingly uncomfortable with unlicensed music being used in VOD clips published by users on the platform and popular Twitch streamers are now facing a complicated legal dilemma. Like YouTube, in order to be protected under US safe harbor laws — and not be liable for infringing user generated content — Twitch is legally required to comply with Digital Millennium Copyright Act DMCA takedown requests served by rights-holders for example a record label or by an entity on behalf of a rightsholder, such as the RIAA. The platform has suggested that its users go through their content and remove potentially infringing content. The problem with this advice, as explained in a Twitter thread published Yesterday June 7 by Twitch user Fuslie is that, for prolific users, this requires sifting through thousands of clips and potentially thousands of hours of content.
I do get a little frustrated when I make dinner but he's just too tired to eat with me after working. About the time I was ready to return for my doctorate a chronic illness hit. God works by small and simple means to bring about His great and eternal purposes. If I were you, I would just nope out of it and move on.
