Lickd's guide to claims-free music for your Facebook video
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 a bland 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 and stock 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. Royalty-free often has more strings attached than you realise.
Why license music for Facebook?
You can't ignore Facebook as a video platform. While the platform has a variety of different ways to engage with your audience, video is one of the best ways to reach your followers.
If you want to use music in your Facebook videos, it has to be licensed. It’s as simple as that. As a platform, they’ve invested millions in finding and removing un-licensed content. Not just that, but as Facebook owns Instagram, you’ll need to get up to speed on music licensing for Instagram. Facebook and Instagram both have similar rules and systems in place, so if you’re familiar with one it’ll help on the other.
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.
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 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.
- Royalty-free stock libraries: 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. In addition to this, these libraries regularly only use basic stock music, that kind that everyone else is using, while charging over the odds. If you want to stand out from the crowd, they just won’t cut it.
- Add the very best stock music with Lickd Essentials: Our own stock library has carefully curated a collection of better-than-stock music to help you enhance your videos for a low monthly fee. You’ll not have to worry about claims again.
- 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.
Facebook Copyright Claims
With Facebook, we cannot guarantee your video won't get a copyright claim. Now hold up, we know how that sounds. But, it’s basically just because Facebook doesn’t have a copyright checking system like for example YouTube does. It just means we can’t automatically clear copyright on your video for you upfront. However you’re still covered and won’t face any problems, because you’ve obtained legal permission to use the music. If your video does get a copyright claim, your End User License Agreement (EULA) will provide proof that you have a legal right to use the song on Facebook. If your video gets a claim, you’ll be given the opportunity to dispute it. All you have to do is share your End User License Agreement in your dispute and that’s it!.
So we are very confident that you shouldn't face any copyright issues 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 offers 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?
Yes, but in all honesty? Barely anyone uses it because the music on there just isn’t great.
Also, 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 any other social media platform 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 stock library, is that your license usually extends to other social media platforms too, at no extra charge!
