YouTube Expands Music Credits: Makes It Easier To Identify the Song Featured in a Video

Next time you hear a song featured in a YouTube video and you are not sure what it is called, or who made it, you can find out by clicking (or tapping) the “show more” button. From a report: YouTube has announced that the platform is expanding the credits available on videos featuring music. The new description feature, called “Music in this video,” provides credits — which includes artist, songwriter, label, and publisher — on both music videos and fan-uploaded content that contains recorded music. This feature will also include a link to available official artist channels and official music videos. The expanded credits are made possible by Content ID, a YouTube system that uses copyright owners’ information and a database of files to identify and manage content.
