March 10, 2018 The Unbiased Writer

Facebook and Warner Music Group have announced a new partnership which includes licensing agreements for Warner’s recorded music and music publishing catalogs for use in videos and messages. Under the new agreement, users can create, upload and share videos with licensed music from Warner. Last year, Facebook signed a multi-year licensing deal with Universal Music Group followed by an extensive licensing agreement with Sony Music Publishing. Eric Mackay, Global Digital Strategy, Warner/Chappell, commented: ‘The team at Facebook is creating a truly innovative product and is showing real commitment to its participation in the growth of the music business. We’ve taken our time to arrive at the best possible deal, one that recognizes the value that music creates on social networks while empowering our songwriters to reach audiences around the world, in a way that will spark creativity and conversation among their fans. Our incredible catalogue of songs will be represented throughout Facebook’s platforms and we’re excited to work together to create new opportunities for both our songwriters and Facebook’s users.’
