Facebook inks music licensing deal with Sony

Facebook has now inked a deal with Sony that will allow you to upload videos containing its music without having to worry about your videos being taken down, Variety reports. If you’re interested in using music licensed from by Sony/ATV Music Publishing, you will be able to upload and share videos on the platform, Oculus and Instagram.

Copyright infringement has become a big concern on social networks, and Facebook has been working incredibly hard to strike deals with music labels so that it doesn’t have to deal with takedowns and fines with labels.

Facebook was able to recently strike deals with Universal Music, but Sony is the largest music publisher in the world. The social media giant has two of the three largest services signed in deals, and it’s expected that the platform will ink a deal with Warner Music soon.

“We are thrilled that in signing this agreement Facebook recognizes the value that music brings to their service and that our songwriters will now benefit from the use of their music on Facebook,” said Sony/ATV Chairman Martin Bandier. “We are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”
