YouTube add songwriter, label and publisher credits to millions of songs

YouTube add songwriter, label and publisher credits to millions of songs

The option will be available to both verified and fan-made accounts and videos, and will include a link to the artist's official page in a newly opened tab in the browser.

YouTube's new "music in this video" credits use the data and technology behind its Content ID to add artist, songwriter and publisher information to videos.

We're still not sure why credits can't be added after a rightsholder has manually tagged (or in Google-speak "claimed") the video. Even before the announcement, several artists, including John Mayer and songwriter Ross Golan, expressed the importance of crediting everyone who worked on a given song.

Alphabet's video-streaming titan has rolled out "Music in this video", a feature that allows you to scrutinise details on artists and songwriters, and their respective labels and publishers. And the company vows that this is only the beginning, explaining that, "Through our industry partnerships, we will expand the scope and quality of data to ensure all creators are credited as completely and accurately as possible".

It's not just game to game but half to half. "I expected to, to be honest". If Jose Mourinho wants to change that, he should go and buy Gareth Bale.

Added Ashcroft, "Unlike with CDs, and LPs before that, songwriters are not generally credited for their work on digital services and platforms; I welcome the steps that YouTube is taking to right this wrong and look forward to supporting their efforts on behalf of all our members".

The latest development in YouTube's progression of updated features will put Musical Artists in the driver seat for once. "This is a great initiative". It has been a longstanding issue that platforms like YouTube and Spotify have had to deal with.

Grammy-winning USA record producer, songwriter and rapper, Rodney Jerkins said: "In today's digital world, achieving accurate and comprehensive song credits is more attainable than ever".

Why YouTube has waited so long to present this music discovery feature is anyone's guess (Shazam anyone), but here it is.
