this article included some interesting back story i was unaware of, that back in 2010 judges in europe sued wotc and wotc lost, which was part of the reason they moved towards PTs without a bunch of side events (at least thats what this article claims). maybe you know more about this?

Not really. I was vaguely aware of some actions, but it was pretty quiet.

Truthfully, there have been a couple different suits (the EU one you mention and one from another L2 in CA), but so far WotC has been dealing with them very quietly. EU labor laws are generally tougher than those in the states, so it's not a surprise that changes happened there first.

The silence is part of the problem. A few people here and there have gotten something, but the cost is high and then WotC won't say anything about what was given or why... and those filing have been met with a stonewall approach. That's in fact part of the motivation. "Hey, deal with everyone openly and the same."

I just thought it was interesting reading an article from someone without the IANAL disclaimer, someone who really DOES have some insights into the underlying laws and case history.

I don't know if magic will ever get the twitch viewership they hope for. It's not a fun game to watch. The cards are too small and a non competitive player won't know half the cards. Pacing is an issue too. Sometimes players play too fast or too slow. I think limited is even worse for streaming because of how complicate the games are and how less identifiable the cards are. In constructed, between a pool of 5 different decks, you're looking at maybe 100 unique cards that all constructed players know.
