Facebook and Sony have signed a licensing deal to allow users to share videos of Sony artists on social media.
Subscribers to Facebook and other social media platforms are usually banned from uploading copyrighted material.
But the multi-year deal agreed between the two media giants, covering multiple countries, means users of Facebook and Instagram will now be able to share videos of their favourite artists.
Sony, which is the world’s biggest music publisher, owns the rights to Michael Jackson and The Beatles, among others, and has a back-catalogue of more than three million songs.
Facebook announced a licensing deal with Universal in December.
