March 12 Is The Deadline To Opt In To Facebook Music Licensing Program For Unaffiliated Songwriters

NEW YORK (Hypebot) – The March 12th deadline for unaffiliated independent songwriters and music publishers to get paid for use of their music on Facebook by registering with the Harry Fox Agency’s Rumblefish division is fast approaching.

Self-published songwriters and independent music publishers can still opt into a standardized direct music-licensing and administration deal with Facebook.

The social network has engaged HFA’s Rumblefish service to offer to publishers and songwriters the opportunity to enter into a direct license agreement with Facebook for Facebook, Instagram and Oculus.

The deal covers the reproduction of compositions in uploaded videos, stories and live videos across all three platforms, and is available to all publishers, including self-published DIY musicians who deliver title registrations to HFA prior to March 12th, shares Dae Brogan of TuneRegistry, which is offering its users a simple method of registering their tracks.
