Instagram add new pop up to warn against using copyrighted music

News

Instagram has introduced a new pop up to warn users when it detects they are using copyrighted music in a live stream. The new pop up is designed to give streamers a chance to stop or change the music before their stream is muted or simply taken down. How much time the user will have isn’t specified.

In a new post on their website, Instagram said their new updates include “Updates include making notifications clearer and surfacing notifications earlier to live broadcasters, to give people time to adjust their streams and avoid interruptions if we detect they may be approaching our limitations. And if your video is muted or blocked, we’ll make it clear what actions you can take to stop the interruption.” 

The increase in live streaming as venues and clubs around the world remain closed has undoubtedly prompted Instagram to make guidelines clearer, and assist users who are frustrated with takedowns and mutes.
