Three new third-party providers will be integrated with Facebook’s Rights Manager tool, which enables the owners of rights to video content to protect that content.
The social network introduced Rights Manager in April 2016.
Product manager Xiaoyin Qu announced in a Facebook Media blog post Tuesday that third-party rights-management providers FriendMTS, MarkMonitor and Zefr are integrating with the social network’s Rights Manager API (application-programming interface) in the coming weeks to provide rights management on Facebook as a service.
Qu wrote that current Rights Manager users can reach out directly to FriendMTS, MarkMonitor or Zefr, and rights owners who are not currently enrolled in Rights Manager can apply to do so here.
She added, “We want to give rights owners access to Rights Manager in the ways that make the most sense for their business. Currently, rights owners can use Rights Manager through page publishing tools and by integrating their applications with Rights Manager via the API. Today’s integrations expand access to Rights Manager functionality by allowing rights owners to work with service providers to help manage their intellectual property if that’s their preferred option.”
