YouTube adds music credits for artists, songwriters and rightsholders

YouTube adds music credits for artists, songwriters and rightsholders

This means that if you are watching anything from a makeup tutorial, travel vlog, instructive videos, to comedy skits, and you like the song that's playing in the background, you can now access the song and see who created it.

On May 10, YouTube announced changes to several of its global charts, including for top songs, top artists and top music videos. "There is so much more we can do to establish a better situation for music creators and this is great step forward". User generated videos featuring live music did not offer the new feature, even though some sampled had nearly certainly been identified by the publishers or label.

"Music in this video" reportedly uses the same technology behind YouTube's Content ID, as pointed out by Android Police. According to an announcement, "Music in this video" credits the artist, songwriter, label and publishers behind than half a billion music videos.

"'Music in this video' strives to provide greater recognition and exposure to the people who contribute to the creative process".

The move comes months after Spotify added songwriting credits to their platforms with information supplied by record labels. This includes contributing artists, songwriters, labels and publishers. In the future, YouTube wants all creators to be credited completely and accurately, and it plans to do so by expanding its scope and quality of data with the help of its industry partners.

This addition is part of ongoing work to provide proper credit to artists on streaming platforms.

"Songwriters are essential to the success of the music industry, but too often their critical role gets overlooked", said Bandier in a statement. It is why I have long called for all online music services to properly acknowledge their contribution by displaying writer credits.

"What YouTube has done by making credits a priority to its platform will allow a better music experience for all". "Music in this video" will be apart of all videos on YouTube.
