Always Providing You With Ongoing Information


Facebook has an epidemic of stolen videos.. Business Pages rip videos from YouTube, TV or other Pages, and then post them on Facebook as their own to gain more engagement and fans. This is known as “freebooting.” Video makers are upset about it because they were losing video views to others who didn’t have permission to use their clips.

 Facebook  has officially launched Rights Manager, its version of YouTube’s Content ID. It’s an admin tool for Pages that lets them upload video clips they don’t want others using. Facebook then monitors for copies of these videos to be posted to Facebook, and can then either automatically report them as violations to be deleted or notify the original publisher.

Rights Manager isn’t openly available yet, but content owners can now apply for access here.
