Alas Facebook found solution for freebooting- it’s a common practice of stealing videos and uploading it on FB’s page to ruin the mutual understanding of Facebook with its audience. The update on Facebook Rights Manager tool that was out last year includes the new option to “claim ad earnings” on videos which they own. In this way if a contravene video includes a new mid-roll ad break Facebook is testing, the amount will be sent to the content’s owner instead of the uploader who steal the video.
Now, all rights are reserved for content owners - were they can set their own rules for whether infringing uploads must be blocked immediately or it should be allowed to watch, as conditions apply the owners must have a check on views, and also claim the ad earnings – or it can be sent to manual review.
The amount will be received by the holders so that they will be able to collect small revenue because the mid-roll ad breaks aren’t fully rolled out yet and are only available to a closed set of beta testers. They allow content owners to decide when to insert a 15 to 20-second ad into their video at or at least 20 seconds or two minutes apart. Facebook shares 55 percent of the money from these ad breaks with the uploader, unless those ad earnings are claimed by someone else through Rights Manager. The new financial protection and incentive could tempt more premium video content owners to Facebook and its massive audience of 1.8 billion users.
