Meta to Let Facebook Creators Earn Money for Videos With Music

Meta Platforms Facebook will let content creators make money from videos with licensed music starting Monday, as the company ramps up its efforts to combat rival TikTok, the popular video-sharing app.

Creators on Facebook will receive 20% of the revenue share through in-stream ads on videos that are longer than 60 seconds and use a song from the platform’s licensed music catalog, according to a company blog post. Meta and songs’ rights holders will each get a separate share.
