Twitch and Amazon have just been accused of intentionally and maliciously screwing with Omnis and Teddy Riley.
Jeff Bezos’ companies — yes, Amazon owns Twitch too — are accused of blatantly ripping off Teddy’s streamed concert April 2 on the Omnis internet platform by taking the entire event and putting it on Twitch.
The folks at Omnis have fired off a cease-and-desist letter to the Twitch folks, demanding they put a quick stop to the whole stealing thing.
According to the letter, obtained by TMZ … “We further understand that Twitch and its affiliated companies, including Amazon.com, Inc., were fully aware of [Omnis’] rights in the Program at the time it was streamed, and that its infringement … may have been intentional and in malicious disregard of [Omnis’] streaming platform.
The letter demands that Twitch take down Teddy’s concert — Teddy Riley & Blackstreet a Quarantine House Party — and fork over any profits, or else a lawsuit’s comin’.
