What’s This?

You’ve been doing Facebook lives on a daily basis. You’re getting tons of engagement and brands are reaching out to you with tons of business opportunities because of your success. Then, all of the sudden you get a notification from Facebook that you’re blocked from doing Facebook lives. Now you’re scratching your head because you can’t figure out what procedure you violated. Turns out it could be something quite simple to fix.

Why Am I Blocked from Doing Facebook Lives?

Most likely, you are being blocked from doing Facebook lives because of music that is being played in the background. It sounds crazy, but even when you’re not purposefully violating copyright, this can be the culprit. Unless you have legal permission from the rights owner of the music and the song/piece does not fall under Fair Use, then the honus is on you to make sure that this type of copyrighted content does not appear in your Facebook lives – this includes music playing in the background.

Now you’re probably freaking out. Maybe you are interviewing people at restaurants where music is being played…how can you get around this crazy restriction?

Keep the Facebook lives to 10-15 seconds, this is usually a good way to get around copyright.

An even better way to stay in the safe zone is to get an external microphone that filters out background sound. There are some very good and affordable options for Microphones specially for Facebook lives on sites like Amazon.

Do you want to get more information about the IP violation? As of right now (and this may change), you can contact Facebook at  ip@fb.com.

Now that you know why you were being blocked Facebook live a few seconds into your broadcast, and since you know how to stop it…you’re ready for Facebook success.
