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 a stock 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 at accessible prices to really set your Facebook videos apart.

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.

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 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.
- 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. If you want to stand out from the crowd, they just won’t cut it.
- 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.

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 stock music from royalty-free 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. However it's 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.
Handling Facebook Copyright Claims
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 also.
