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

The "music in this video" feature will provide expanded credits for songs heard in a wide range of videos, from official artist clips to fan-uploaded content containing recorded music, along with DJ sets, short films, beauty vlogs and gamer videos. Now, all videos with music will have artist, songwriter, label and publisher credits. It also gives links to the artist's official channel and the song's official music video. Collected below are some of the most interesting and compelling videos released over the last week.

The section, called "music in this video, ' will start showing up on desktop and in the YouTube app under the 'show more" section.

More than half a billion videos on YouTube will, from today, carry credits covering songwriter, label and publisher data - and that's just the start. This makes YouTube the first-ever site to have credits listed under fan videos.

This comes as YouTube prepare to launch their new dedicated music subscription service next week: YouTube Music.

This is all part of YouTube's move to increase the value of music on their platform after repeated criticism from the industry. Spotify and YouTube mostly limit this feature to songwriters and producers (as opposed to TIDAL, who began listing full credits in December); it remains to be seen whether they will expand this feature further in the future.

Elton John said: "Songwriters are the heart and the soul of songs, so it's wonderful seeing them get the credit they deserve.There is so much more we can do to establish a better situation for music creators and this is great step forward".

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