Reason for ban?

As with all other bans, Twitch did not disclose the reason for HermanLi’s ban. Twitch has a policy where they do not disclose such information. According to his fans on Twitter, HermanLi was banned for playing his own music during one of his Livestreams.

This is just a speculation but could very well be the reason for the ban. Herman’s own music was previously claimed on YouTube before so it would not be uncommon for such a thing to happen on Twitch as well.

With all the DMCA disasters happening on Twitch, HermanLi could also be a victim of a DMCA takedown for playing his own music during his live streams.
