Chapter 10: Social media

Hayleigh Bosher


Social media has largely replaced the idea of fan clubs in the modern-day music industry. It is the best way to connect with your fans and the contemporary marketing arena. The content on social media is likely to be protected by copyright, so there are a few important things that you need to aware of in order to know where you stand with regards to your own content as well as the use of other people’s content. As such, this chapter covers who owns the content on social media, infringement of social media content and a look at two platforms that are particularly relevant to the music industry; TikTok and YouTube.
