Monetized accounts get royalty-free stock music free for 6 months on Facebook

Once these 6 months are up, or if you aren’t monetizing your content, you’ll need to pay £10/month (or $13 or €11) to keep on using your tracks on Facebook.

Lickd's guide to claims-free music for Facebook
Any content you upload to Facebook undergoes a number of checks. Some of these are automatic, and some are manual, but they’re all aimed at spotting content that either goes against their guidelines or breaches copyright laws. Up until now, to avoid copyright claims, you’ve probably had to resort to Facebook’s sound collection or another library that says it offers royalty free music. Getting a copyright claim against your Facebook video is a real punch in the gut and it’s likely to happen because you’ve used copyrighted music without permission. But now, Lickd exists, and we’re here to help you find copyrighted music (claims free!) and royalty-free music at accessible prices to really set your Facebook videos apart.
As experts in music licensing for Facebook, we’re here to help.
Can I use royalty free music on Facebook?
Yes you can! The trick with royalty free music is to find the best available. When music is royalty free, it simply means that you don’t have to pay royalties on an ongoing basis. It doesn’t mean free music! When you use royalty free music on Facebook you may still need to provide credit and you will still have to make sure you have permission to use that particular track.
With Lickd, adding royalty free music to Facebook videos is simple. You just need to add it to your basket and check out. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have the right to use that track in your Facebook videos.
Why license music for Facebook?
You can't ignore Facebook as a video platform.
Facebook has over 1 billion daily active users and is catching up with YouTube fast. The personal insight that Facebook has into your audience is unparalleled and it's reach is vast with over 8 billion video views each day (2015). Even if you've yet to delve deep into Facebook you can be assured that your music license with us covers posting your videos there too. If Facebook isn’t for you, why not find out about Lickd’s music licensing for Instagram. Facebook and Instagram both have similar rules and systems in place, as they are owned by the same company, so if you’re familiar with one it’ll help on the other.
How to license music for Facebook
Licensing music for Facebook has never been easier. There are a number of ways you can access all the tracks you need, whether it’s just background music or high quality audio tracks to use as an intro. These include:
- License chart music for Facebook with Lickd: Offering the best selection of legal music and full length recorded tracks from the biggest artists and labels around, Lickd lets you license tracks at low prices to set you apart from the competition. Any music you license for Facebook with Lickd won’t have any copyright issues, as you’ve paid for the right to use it. Plus, most licenses let you use them across other channels too.
- Facebook’s Sound Collection: Facebook offers its own built-in music library. This functionally allows you to add tracks to your videos easily, and without worrying about copyright, as long as you follow their rules. While this is incredibly accessible, and a great point of entry, it offers a relatively limited selection of tracks and a lot of filler.
- Add the very best royalty-free stock music from the Lickd library: There are a number of stock music libraries that offer what’s known as ‘royalty-free’ music. This means the royalties are waived for the piece and you can use it as long as you meet the conditions. This often involves a significant fee and often the libraries have a limited selection. This is where Lickd comes in. We have a specially curated library of royalty-free stock music for Facebook. For monetized accounts each track is free for 6 months too, then it just costs £10 a month thereafter, way lower than many stock music platforms.
- Copyright free music: In very rare circumstances, some tracks can become completely copyright free. As it’s such a rare instance though it’s almost impossible to rely on copyright free music for your Facebook.
What music can I put on a Facebook Video?
You can add any music to your Facebook content that you have the rights to. This means that, technically, there’s no limit to the tracks you can use as long as you can obtain the correct rights. You can only use music that’s licensed, royalty-free or copyright free for your Facebook videos and Facebook Live content.
Obtaining a license is pretty simple. Just sign up to Lickd and you’ll gain access to an extensive library of music from the biggest artists in the world. Never settle for sub-standard music from generic libraries again. Stay claims-free on Facebook with Lickd.
Facebook Copyright Claims
With Facebook we cannot guarantee your video won't get a copyright claim. But don't worry! If your video does get a copyright claim your End User Agreement will provide legal proof that you have a legal right to use the song on Facebook. If you are given the opportunity you should dispute the copyright claim using your End User Agreement and let us know so we can coordinate with the record label as well.
It's also been widely reported that Facebook has paid the music industry a large sum of money for unlimited use of commercial music over the next 2 years.
So we are very confident that you shouldn't get a copyright claim on the platform. We've seen many of our Creators happily using Lickd music on Facebook unhindered.
How can you avoid copyright violations on Facebook?
Avoiding a copyright violation on Facebook may sound like it’s easier said than done but, in reality, it’s actually fairly simple. The basics include using a music track that you have the rights to, and then following Facebook’s guidelines and rules.
Learn everything you can on how to use copyrighted music on Facebook, whether it’s the ins-and-outs of live streams, recorded audio or recordings of traditional musical performances. Facebook is one of the best platforms for creators, offering extensive reach and wide audiences, so understanding your music options is key to cutting through the noise.
Can I use music from Facebook sound collection on YouTube?
Facebook’s terms of service state that any music license from the Facebook Sound Collection is ‘solely for the purpose of using such audio content in videos you create, upload, and distribute on the Facebook platform only’.
This means you can’t use the tracks you license through their platform on YouTube without seeking a separate license. The great thing about Lickd, whether you opt for one of our chart music licenses or a song from our royalty free stock library, is that your license usually extends to other social media platforms too, at no extra charge!
