Streamlabs are under-fired by the community.

Streamlabs yesterday announced the release of Streamlabs Studio, a new product that brings web-based Twitch streaming to Xbox and uses cloud capture to remove the need for capture cards.

Now, it has been accused of plagiarism from rival companies. Top streamers, including Pokimane, have also chimed in and threatened to move to other services.

Lightstream is a web-based streaming studio that similarly allows for console streaming without a capture card. The company's Twitter account shared an image of their website alongside that of Streamlabs Studio saying "Hey, can I copy your homework?".

The image shows the two websites side by side with almost identical layouts, copy, and even quotes from users.

StuV2, the CEO of Lightstream, shared the tweet. "The team at @ should be ashamed. Not satisfied enough to ride @Project's hard work. Now to copy ours down to the layout and every word on our marketing site and our UX in this product," he said.

Streamlabs responded to this tweet apologising. "We made a mistake," reads the response. "Text on the landing page was placeholder text that went into production by error. This is our fault. We removed the text as soon as we found out. Our intended version is now live. Lightstream team is great and we've reached out directly to them to apologize."

The Lightstream tweet was later shared by OBS, the provider of open source software for video recording and live streaming. While OBS came first, Streamlabs took the name for their main Streamlabs OBS product (SLOBS).

"Near the launch of SLOBS, @ reached out to us about using the OBS name. We kindly asked them not to. They did so anyway and followed up by filing a trademark," reads the OBS tweet.

"We've tried to sort this out in private and they have been uncooperative at every turn."

The thread continues, explaining how many users and companies confuse OBS and Streamlabs OBS and believe they are the same app because of the name.

"Legally they have obeyed the terms of the GPL but they have repeatedly disregarded the spirit of open source and of giving back," said OBS.

Elgato, provider of streamer hardware including the Stream Deck app, also chimed in with a tweet saying "know that feel". Streamlabs Studio allows users to control their stream from their phone, just like Elgato's Stream Deck.

In the wake of this, streamers have been threatening to move from Streamlabs to OBS.

Pokimane, one of the most popular creators on Twitch, is one such streamer. "Streamlabs better resolve this entire thread of issues or i'll be asking them to take my face off the platform + look to use another donation service," she wrote on Twitter.

HasanAbi, another popular streamer, also voiced his opinion: "I will never use @ again if they don't immediately resolve this matter."
