Yahoo! Music Captures Legal Lyrics

Published: 2007-04-26
You might not have been aware of it, but websites that host song lyrics are not legal. To post lyrics you must have consent from the owner. Having taken note of this, the first officially legal lyric website is getting ready to be fire up.

The site will be featured via Yahoo! Music. It will essentially free up the access to 400, 000 songs legally. The lyrics that will be posted have been handed down by Gracenote, who is the same company that deals with iTunes.

The site will be easy to access and feature a plethora of artists. You'll simply need a bar of the song to type in and bingo your search will begin. More than 100 music publishers have leased song lyrics from their noted artists, companies such as, BMG Music Publishing, EMI Music Publishing, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Universal Music Publishing Group and Warner/Chappell Music are all part of the package.
