With DMCA claims on streams becoming more and more common, streamers have been looking for ways to get around licensed music, with the hopes of avoiding any issues down the line from record labels or rights holders. With demand for a solution so high developers have started to implement options to turn off licensed music for their games, which disables any risk of a DMCA claim.
However, Life Is Strange: True Colors version of the DMCA-safe mode doesnt quite work in the way streamers were all hoping. With music being interwoven so deeply within the game, this mode would have had to replace that licensed music with royalty-free tracks or change the scene entirely. But, instead of doing that, the mode just mutes the scene almost entirely, leading to some awkward moments of silence for some streamers.
