New hires at Facebook may see music copyrights finally fixed on the platform

7 adverts for positions in music have been posted for Facebook to “ensure a comprehensive music strategy” as copyright issues over music plague the social media platform.

Facebook is currently rife with copyright issues as labels come at the platform, since videos have become such a large presence on the platform without a content identification system to scan for copyrighted materials. In particular this has ruffled feathers with  major labels, like Universal who have been tearing down cover songs all over the social media site, citing breaches of copyright.

With this pressure behind them Facebook are looking to build a full music team that can create and manage a “comprehensive music strategy”. So far they have already nabbed YouTube executive Tamara Hrivnak, who secured partnerships in music for Google Play and YouTube over 4 years, to lead their global music strategy

The new job listings that will shape their music strategy include:

Legal, Finance, Facilities & Admin
Business Development & Partnerships
Business Development & Partnerships
Business Development & Partnerships
Whilst they’re clearly taking steps towards a working music model Facebook will have to hurry up if they want to appease users who have been attacked over copyrights (some fairly, some not) and to get music labels on their side so they can integrate popular music into Facebook somehow.
