Earlier, we shared a blog on how to integrate Instagram on Facebook Creator studio and also shared on how to add free tracks and sound effects to your video using Facebook Sound Collection available in Creator Studio. This time, we will give a brief explanation of Creator Studio’s other features namely, Facebook Rights Manager and Facebook Content Library.

Facebook Creator Studio has been here for a while now, and we all know how it is drawing attention, mainly from small businesses that are looking for better ways to create and monitor their Facebook content. With Creator Studio, you can analyze your page’s performance, streamline Facebook content, use creative tools and at the same time monetize your page.

Facebook Rights Manager to protect your content

The Rights Manager tab allows you to protect your copyrighted content on Facebook and Instagram by detecting audio and video content which matches your original content. To do this, you have to upload reference files for comparing and identifying potential matches and further applying rules and regulations you have set to detect copyright infringements.

Content creators who wish to protect their piece of work on Facebook and Instagram will have to submit an application with an email address and other details on behalf of the page to become Rights Manager page admin. The same can be applied from the “Pages” tab in Creator Studio.

After you have applied for Facebook Rights Manager, you get some match rules which act as conditions to what happens when videos that match a reference file get found. You can even apply for match rules that get automatically triggered whenever a match case is found. Such Automatic reactions are quite helpful when you are trying to scale. Each match rule must have at least one action if one or more conditions are met. Videos that do not meet any of the conditions for match rule won’t appear on the Facebook Rights Manager.

Available actions
  1. Claim Ad earnings: The match stays published on Facebook. If an ad break runs during the video matching the rights owner’s reference file, then place a request for a money share.
  2. Monitor: You can monitor activities like views and page follows while the video remains published to Facebook. Rights owner can later apply another action and meanwhile, matches are eligible to earn from ad breaks.
  3. Block: The content gets restricted from being viewed by anyone except the uploader, who can later dispute the block with the rights owner within Facebook.
  4. Manual Review: Flags any matched segments for a manual review by a Rights Manager page admin. After 30 days, the matched videos will expire from manual review.
Applying Match Rules

While publishing a post or when uploading reference files through Facebook Rights Manager, you can apply match rule for each video you upload. Once a video is posted, you can apply match rule from Edit video under Video Library or via Edit Reference File in  Reference Files Library.

In Facebook Rights Manager settings, you can also specify custom ownership settings. These will automatically populate whenever you choose to Detect matching content in the upload tool or in the Video Library
