Facebook Looks to Expand Into Music Rights and Licensing

Facebook has kind of been a think tank for major ideas of social media. As if you didn't know that already. Even ideas that they did not develop first, the technology giant is able to take them, refine them and push them back out with a unique change.

In an interview with Bloomberg Technology, David Israelite, the president of the National Music Publishers Association stated that “We’re hopeful that they are moving towards licensing music for the entire site […]“. This is a bold and incredible claim.
