Facebook has struck a deal with music publisher Sony, allowing users to upload and share music and content from artists signed with the company, according to multiple reports.

Why it matters: It's the second major licensing deal the company has inked in just a few weeks — a growing sign of improving relations between the music industry and tech giants. Facebook rival YouTube has also been striking similar deals with major music labels.
