Rights Manager expansion by Facebook
Facebook has announced an expansion of its Rights Manager tool, which will now automatically detect image copyright violations for claimed content across both Facebook and Instagram.
Rights Manager works by cross-referencing your uploaded visual content against other user uploads across Facebook's platforms, and alerting content owners to potential violations.
Steps to use Rights Manager
1: Users need to fill out a form, asserting their rights to the content, then upload the video or image asset that they want protected.
2: Once the submitted facebook will then apply its matching system to the base content in order to detect any potential re-use.
The new process will help to cover more types of content, which will help rights holders better protect their IP across Facebook's platforms.
