Brand Rights Protection is the new tool by Facebook that enables enrolled trademark owners to report and initiate takedown of content that infringes their Intellectual Property Rights.
The Facebook tool is an updated version of what was previously known as Commerce & Ads IP Tool, the update also includes a streamlined automated request takedown process.
Up to 10 images of brand assets such as logos or product images can be saved by the brands and Facebook's image-matching technology scans ads on Facebook and Instagram through an automated process, so brands can review and report content that potentially infringes their IP Rights.
