Musicians can promote their work through Facebook's Musician Pages. But before allowing them to upload music files, Facebook requires administrators to submit scans of their driver's licenses, to keep on file in case claims of copyright infringement come up. Last night, one of these administrators, an employee at Ping Pong Music, discovered Facebook had posted his license publicly on EMI artist This World Fair's page. He took a screenshot, which we've included below.
The whole idea behind free Facebook Pages for musicians, business and brands is to get them in the door, get them hooked, and get them to pay for ads to promote their page. Don't expect Ping Pong Music to open their wallet anytime soon now. "It just upsets me a little to think they could let this happen," our source tells us.
