NOTE: Check out our update video with new info for 2019! – Copyrighted Music on Facebook? 2019
Can you use copyrighted music on Facebook Video? That’s today’s Q&A!
Today’s question comes from Robbie Snooks. He asks:
Does facebook have any issues with using copyright music? The reason I’m asking is because when I’m streaming an event with youtube and if youtube hears even ambient copyright music coming from in-house speakers we often get cut off. It can be really annoying and frustrating.
Yes! Yes it can be, Robbie.
Using Copyrighted Music on Facebook
The short answer is no. You will get flagged and your video taken down.
The longer answer is this.
Facebook has had a lot of issues with people stealing content and so they’ve really hit it hard lately in terms of privacy. So their bots have gotten more aggressive and will take your videos down if they detect any copyrighted music.
You CAN dispute it if you feel you have the right to use it, or have permission. But it will come down while the dispute is happening.
