The other day while watching a TikTok video, I clicked on the audio icon to see what the song was and saw this for the first time…
I found that intriguing. It looks like TikTok actually pays copyright fees for all the music clips used on their app. I wonder how that works? It seems like if you upload a video that uses a popular song, TikTok somehow finds it and tries to obtain copyright permissions for that clip. I guess if they can’t obtain permission they delete the video. ??
There were quite a few creators there who had their accounts suspended for playing music while live-streaming because of the copyright issues.
It’ll be interesting to see how Byte tackles this. Maybe it’ll be different because you can only record up to 6 seconds, whereas in TikTok the videos can be longer.
