Popular streamer HasanAbi recently clarified his stance on fan channels and websites, even those monetizing his work. According to the content creator, HasanAbi “basically gave up my intellectual property completely.”
While some streamers are known for protecting their work by issuing takedown requests, HasanAbi has been fairly lenient with his followers, but content creators have mostly remained silent about what his followers are allowed to create or distribute, at least until now . HasanAbi is obviously fine with people using his intellectual property for almost any purpose, and the only requirement for streaming is, as a courtesy, backlinks in cases where his content is being monetized.
“I fucking ride for all my fan channels,” Hassan Abbey Say in a stream. “YouTube has shut down a number of fan channels, including The Daily Dose of HasanAbi, and stopped monetizing them.” The content creator continued: “I talked to my YouTube account manager and I said ‘No, I Hopefully they can continue to be profitable.’ I want them to do whatever they want.” HasanAbi added: “I don’t mind their presence. I encourage it. I’ve basically given up my intellectual property completely.”
HasanAbi believes that fan channels and websites are actually good for his brand because they showcase a lot of his content. He just wants followers to include backlinks on his Twitch page and his accounts on social media like Twitter and Instagram, especially if money is involved. The influencer fully supports the YouTube channels Daily Dose of HasanAbi and HasanAbi Productions, both of which count him as a content creator.
HasanAbi has been in the news recently for criticizing the latest trends in gambling streaming on Twitch. Stake has been at the center of this ongoing controversy since xQc started distributing promo codes to online casinos. “A lot of these sites, Stake and all of them, if they have the code, if you provide the code, it means that Stake is tracking all your losses and you get a share of your fanbase losses,” Hasan previously explained. “Literally, that’s what it is. That’s how fucking bad it is. They keep you involved. They let you know the loss of your fucking fan base.”
