Live streaming on Facebook
Posted: Sat Dec 16, 2017 9:54 pm
Next weekend we are planning to live stream our big end of year show in Edinburgh. We are using the services of a specialist provider who holds a PRS licence that covers such things but he tells us that despite this he still occasionally has content taken down / blocked by Facebook and has had difficulty obtaining clarity on how to make it clear to Facebook that the stream is properly licensed either from PRS or Facebook themselves. I wonder if anyone else here has experience of such things? I have no wish to incur a sanction from Facebook or have our band page blocked and since ours is a tribute/covers show, clearly licensing needs to be properly addressed and I am not knowingly trying to 'get away' with avoiding this. Our audience is unlikely to be huge but I am keen to do it to try and create a bit of a buzz and bring us to the attention of potential fans/promoters further afield.
