Facebook Updates its Rights Protection Tools to Help Brands Detect Violations of IP Across its Apps

Published

Facebook’s looking to help businesses crackdown on unapproved use of their intellectual property across its apps, with a new update to its Commerce and Ads IP Tool, which it’s also renaming to ‘Brand Rights Protection’, providing a more direct description of its purpose.

As you can see in this image, Facebook’s Brand Rights Protection platform enables businesses to upload images of their licensed products, which Facebook’s systems can then use as a reference point for detecting similar matches, and highlighting potential usage violations in Page posts, Marketplace listings, etc.

As explained by Facebook:

“Brand Rights Protection allows enrolled trademark owners to search and report content that they believe infringes on their IP rights, and now offers features to streamline and automate the process.”

Businesses need to register their trademark certificates and credentials with Facebook, which will then give them capacity to utilize the tool to detect matches based on legal ownership.

The main update to the new platform is the capacity to upload and save up to 10 images, such as logos or product images, for reference in scanning content across Facebook and Instagram. Up till now, brands haven’t been able to save these searches, and have only been able to search on a proactive, case-by-case basis. The new update will provide more capacity for consistent tracking and alerts, which will help IP owners better detect potential violations of their licensed products.

In addition to this, Facebook’s also expanding the search capacity for the tool beyond paid ads, with brands now also able to search and report Instagram accounts and posts that they think may be infringing on their rights.

That’s a significant expansion, which will likely catch out a lot more violations of IP, and could, eventually, extend to unlicensed or unwanted usage in influencer posts and other paid partnerships.

Facebook’s also added a new dashboard of total IP actions, including the status of their IP reports, and historic activity.

The additions will provide more capacity for brands to monitor the usage of their product images, and address unapproved instances and scams, and in conjunction with Rights Manager, Facebook’s copyright detection tool for creators and publishers, that will provide enhanced coverage to detect potential violations, and address such before they can harm creators and rights owners via Facebook’s apps.

Ideally, that will see an end of those scam sunglass sale posts in your feed, and dodgy re-sellers on Marketplace, while it will also become a more critical element as the platform pushes further into eCommerce and on-platform selling.

TikTok Shares New Insights into Effective Promotional Approaches in the App [Infographic]

TikTok has introduced a new paradigm in social media engagement, where users are not only able to view the latest trending content, but they’re also invited to contribute, with the short nature of TikTok clips opening up more opportunity for creativity, connection and engagement.

Brands looking to tap into the platform need to understand this – TikTok is not only about passive consumption, but also active participation, which is why normal, intrusive ad approaches don’t work, as they don’t invite viewers into the experience.

That variance is the focus of this new infographic from TikTok, which provides a range of stats that relate to how users engage with content in the app, and how brands can tap into creator partnerships to maximize their promotions.

As per TikTok:

“TikTok audiences prefer brands that show they understand how to create and use the platform — they want brands to meet them where they are on TikTok. And how exactly should brands meet audiences where they are? Creators.”

To maximize your promotional performance, TikTok recommends an ‘Always Engaged’ strategy, which utilizes organic and paid content, while also leveraging creators to help brands reach their business goals.

The following stats reinforce this strategic approach.
