We launched Rights Manager last year to help rights owners protect their video content at scale, and have continued to improve the tool. We’ve heard from rights owners that they’d like more ways to access Rights Manager capabilities, so today we are announcing new third-party integrations.

Three service providers — Friend MTS, MarkMonitor, and ZEFR — are integrating with the Rights Manager API to provide rights management on Facebook as a service. These companies are proven industry leaders in the rights management space.

We want to give rights owners access to Rights Manager in the ways that make the most sense for their business. Currently, rights owners can use Rights Manager through Page Publishing Tools and by integrating their applications with Rights Manager via the API. Today’s integrations expand access to Rights Manager functionality by allowing rights owners to work with service providers to help manage their intellectual property if that’s their preferred option.

If you’re already using Rights Manager and you’d like to work with one of these providers, you can reach out to the company directly. If you’re a rights owner not currently enrolled in Rights Manager, you can first apply for access here, and then reach out to the company of your choice. These integrations will be available in the coming weeks.

If you’re a service provider that is interested in integrating with the Rights Manager API, contact us here.
