ICTnews contacted Facebook’s person in charge of communications in the Vietnamese market but has not been able to reach it.

In its music use policy on Facebook, the social network said it “would like to encourage the expression of music on Facebook, while ensuring that we endorse agreements with music copyright holders”.

In principle when recording live video, Facebook says that the fuller the music video, the more likely it is to be restricted (e.g. muted or blocked), shorter music clips should be used, and always there is a visual element in the video, the audio in it shouldn’t be the main purpose of the video.
