Facebook hired Tamara Hrivnak from Warner some weeks back as head of music licensing.

It is now advertising for a legal director of music licensing.

That seems to mean the social media giant is heading towards a Youtube-style arrangement with copyright owners. Hrivnak says: ‘ I look forward to deepening Facebook’s relationship with the music industry.’

    Great. More money for the industry, still next to nothing for the people who actually make the music.
