    No. And there's a lot more that also get stopped on copyright, that we don't hear about. Soon as you upload, it becomes property of FB, and they aren't getting sued for breach of copyright, hence they kill the vid containing any music/sample that's protected by copyright. Personally, unless you are playing to a venue or a live audience, it's not really much of an interest to guys who actually want to hear the music with half decent quality.
    Over here, tons of guys are/were at it in bedrooms, and it got very boring, very quick. I want to hear the music, not dodgy phone video sound stream with a video stream of a dude with 'Serato face', and a rather dull duvet in the background, and maybe if you look hard enough, some unwashed laundry. An added bonus if the DJ lights up a cig, or swill from a can of coors, so I tend to ignore, and sometimes unfollow these guys. At the start, it's a novelty, folk get to see the tech that other folk use, but seriously, there are few that are worth watching, playing the same boring shit, on a laptop and controller.
    Don't mean to shoot ya down dude, but I cannot stand the FB bedroom DJ thing. It's pointless.

    Default Live has been a great tool

    My residency is on a Saturday evening from 9pm until close and I always use Live to broadcast my sets as the city I live in has a crowd who tend to only come out later but with the Live it has been useful for getting people geared up to come party and by the time they get to my venue they all commenting how they were enjoying the live whilst getting ready, travelling or whatever they were doing.

    I have had many live posts blocked or deleted by facebook but also have had many post on my wall and still continue to get people watching and commenting.
