Facebook & Instagram Copyright Claims
With Facebook and Instagram 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 either platform. We've seen many of our Creators happily using Lickd music on Facebook & Instagram unhindered.
Handling 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 and Instagram. If you are given the opportunity you should dispute the copyright claim using your End User Agreement and let us know so we can co-ordinate with the record label also.
