Big tech found a way to get the biggest bang for the buck. It’s to pay publishers and record labels lump-sum licensing advances (or so-called ‘buy-out’ deals) rather than sharing a proportion of revenue for every listen/use of music on their platforms.

After years of scrutiny, Facebook abandoned the ancient lump sum practice and accepted the ‘revenue-share’ model for user-generated video content. Video creators that use licensed music in videos over 60 seconds long on Facebook will receive a 20% share of any advertising revenue. The 80% will be split between music rights holders and Meta. Influencers with sizable followings will benefit and reap some rewards.

Kobalt Music Publishing is pulling its near 700,000 songs off from Facebook and Instagram according to MBW.

According to a memo, Kobalt’s licensing deal with Facebook and Instagram has expired – and a new agreement wasn’t reached between the two parties.

“Unfortunately, fundamental differences remained that we were not able to resolve in your best interests, and as a result Kobalt’s repertoire is in the process of being removed from Meta’s services, including Facebook and Instagram, in the United States.”

“We’ve always stood for songwriters first, and we’re proud to continue to do so. We remain fully committed to reaching an agreement with Meta.”
