The controversial guidelines, set to take effect on July 1, impose restrictions on the size of logos displayed during streams, capping them at no more than 3% of the screen size. Additionally, the policies prohibit the insertion of video, audio, and display ads directly into streams, significantly limiting the advertising avenues available to streamers for promoting products and services.
