Why Was Pokimane Banned

Pokimane, a popular user on the site, was banned for 48 hours on Friday, January 7, 2022.

Pokimane’s real name is Imane Anys, and she was born on May 14, 1996 and rose to prominence after broadcasting video game content, specifically League of Legends and Fortnite, on Twitch.

Pokimane has been streaming on Twitch since 2013 and is a member of OfflineTV, an online social entertainment group of content creators.

She was one of the most popular accounts on the platform by 2017. She won the Shorty Award for Best Twitch Streamer the same year and was named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list in 2021, and she has over 8.5 million followers on the streaming platform.

Pokimane has multiple YouTube accounts, including Pokimane, Pokimane Too, Pokimane VODS, Poki ASMR, and her in addition to Twitch. The fan-favorite streamer has also taken on more on-screen roles, including a cameo in the film Free Guy and a cameo in the music video for Sub Urban’s Inferno.

Twitch banned user Pokimane for 48 hours on Friday, January 7, 2022.

She broke copyright laws by live streaming Avatar: The Last Airbender episodes to over 25K viewers. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) makes it illegal to create and distribute technology, devices, or services that are designed to circumvent copyrighted work access controls.

Unpermitted use of copyrighted music typically attracts more criticism than unpermitted use of TV and film, but Twitch has complete control over what they will and will not allow on their platform.

On Twitch, a new trend has emerged in which creators livestream various television shows and movies, commenting and answering questions along the way.
