Cyberpunk 2077’s soundtrack might be a worry for streamers. If you play games live on Twitch, YouTube, or other streaming platforms, you will be wary of doing so with CD Projekt Red’s RPG title.

The looming threat of DMCA strikes, particularly in light of increasingly regular takedown notices, could cause some streamers to hold off on playing Cyberpunk 2077 for their audiences. However, you do not have to worry about copyright claims being made against you. A feature in Cyberpunk 2077 allows you to disable copyrighted music if you stream live footage of the dystopian FPS game, so read on to find out how to turn it on or off.

How to disable copyrighted music in Cyberpunk 2077

To disable copyrighted music in Cyberpunk 2077, head to Settings. You can do this from the main menu before starting a new game or pressing the back button on your controller. You can cycle through several tabs in the Settings menu, but the Sound sub-menu is the first one that loads.

Scroll down using the left thumbstick on your controller until you see the ‘Disable Copyrighted Music’ option. Use the A button on Xbox, cross button on PlayStation, or left click on your mouse to toggle this feature on or off. To save your changes, press the B or circle button. Any copyrighted music will not play now, so you are safe from DMCA strikes when streaming it.
