Microsoft handing out 24-hour Xbox Live bans for swearing on Xbox One Upload Studio
Microsoft seems to be taking a heavy-handed approach to keeping the video content uploaded from the Xbox One's Upload Studio is clean and safe.
They have been handing down a number of early 24-hour bans to users who have been found to breach Microsoft's definition of bad language in their video uploads from the Xbox One.
A Microsoft spokesperson explained their policy:
"We take code of conduct moderation via Upload Studio very seriously. The team reviews every clip that is uploaded to the service to help maintain a clean, safe and fun environment for all users.”
"Excessive profanity and other code of conduct violations will be enforced upon. On Xbox One, we have a more sophisticated system of enforcement. As a result, if someone misbehaves on the service, we may only suspend some of their privileges on Xbox Live such as access to certain apps or use of certain features.”
"We remain committed to preserving and promoting a safe, secure and enjoyable experience for all of our Xbox Live members."
They will not (and probably cannot) police Skype conversations on Xbox Live in the same way. The spokesperson assured Xbox One users, "To be clear, the Xbox Live policy and enforcement team does not monitor direct peer-to-peer communications like Skype chats and calls."
