Yeah that's what I'm saying. There is nothing wrong with that them doing that.
Yes there is. How is using another persons name/brand (without their permission) to promote things not wrong. He has a right to be pissed.

Who legally owns his username on twitch?
It is his username. It is his channel. He created them. He built them.

Really is staggering how much leeway people give these shiity companies snd their s***ty tactics.

Because they aren't using his brand to promote things. They are the site they own to promote streams on the site they own. If it appears he is the one promoting the other streams I might agree but that isn't the case.

They invested in Ninja and his "brand" and now they want to drive some of those users to other channels because he is gone. They used to advertise Ninja in ads that were played during streams. Yeah the circumstances are different but the bottom line was it was ok because it benefited him.

I could go either way. Since he is gone and people may not know, I can see Twitch saying here are some people you may be interested in. But it's also pretty scummy to continue to profit off Ninja's name and everything he has built.

Nothing different than when a TV show leaves a streaming service and then having a suggestions of other shows you may like. He also has no problems leaving his donation page up to get donations from people on a platform he's no longer using. And links to swag he's selling. And links to affiliates he gets money from.

Something they helped build

It has his damned name attached to it.

Anyone got a source on the legalities of his name/ account on twitch? I'm convinced there's an easy way to settle this, if he agreed to them using his username etc. to promote things when he signed up, he shouldn't complain imo

Yeah presumably he signed some sort of user agreement when signing up (those things that nobody ever reads but should). I'm sure he doesn't "own" anything.

I look at it like this. If a sports player left a team and his old team continued to use his name or likeness after he is gone. Wouldn’t like that very much.

On a site he doesn't own.

I get recommendations on youtube when I watch something. Is anyone offended by that?
True, but if I go to someone's YouTube page, i only see their stuff. Would CBS like it if they were advertising FOX shows within their own home page?

They advertised Ninja during other streams. He was ok with that.

If I pause a YouTube video it gives me a multitude of different suggestions.
