Instagram has come up with instructions to not use copyrighted music in stories, posts, and live videos. According to the reports, Instagram has added a new update to its app that will inform the users whenever they try to use copyrighted music. The update will help the users to prevent their posts or story from getting restricted.
The following update included a pop-up notification that will warn the users while they are trying to post or going live on Instagram using unauthorized music. The notification will give a certain amount of time to the users for removing copyrighted music. This will prevent users from getting their accounts blocked on Instagram. Previously, we have seen that Instagram used to mute the story, live video, or posts in which the users have used unlicensed music.
Yesterday, Instagram announced the following news itself. They stated about the new update and the favor that it will be going to provide the users. In their statement, Instagram added that the notification would alert the users whenever the program finds the use of any unlicensed music. In addition to this, they said that the primary motive of this update is to notify the users about the copyrighted music to give them a chance to edit their post, story, or live video.
Although, Instagram also said that the update would also be going to help the users to know about the license agreement of the music. They said that numerous types of music content could be used by the users in their posts, stories, and live videos. So, it is better to check the music by this update to know if posting it is permissible or not. Instagram also said that there is various music that is allowed by their creators to use them in Instagram posts but is restricted from being used during the live video. Thus, it is suggested that the users must check their story, post, or live video.
The pop-up notification update will also work on the recorded and live videos posted on Facebook as well. All the quirks of the following update will similarly help the users of Facebook as it does on Instagram. The location also plays a vital role in this update as using music platforms on Instagram is only available in several countries. So, the locations where the feature is not available yet, the users over there will not be notified by the new update.
The initiative of Instagram to provide resolve to its users is commendable. As earlier, the users are quite worried about using the music content to enable blocking or restriction. Thus, now they can freely be asked permission from Instagram for going live or posting the video.
