Facebook Gaming has collaborated with music labels like Universal Music Group, and Sony Music Group, to expand their music catalog that can be used by creators for streaming and more video products, without copyright strikedowns.
Last year, Facebook had announced the launch of music on Facebook Gaming. Since then, Facebook along with Partner Creators have been working on music availability without the risk of takedowns, as Gaming creators are often prone to copyright strikes while streaming.
Since last year, Facebook has made improvements and has expanded the access to music to a number of creators. All Partner and Level Up Creators can now play background music during their gaming live streams, including clips made from a live stream and the VOD versions of live streams.
