Song lyrics have shown to be quality content which is attractive to a large audience. Reporting on music, album releases or concerts could quickly lead to include song lyrics as part of an news item. But be aware. Song lyrics are not in the public domain. Publishing lyrics on properties without approval of the copyright holders can lead to statutory damages for copyright infringement e.g. in the United States of up to $150,000 per work infringed.
The NMPA has been targeting publishers of lyrics without licensing successfully.
Our supporters will push from an initial US reach of around 10M (2011) to over 150M LyricsSeal views per month, which accounts to 70% of lyrics pageviews within three years.
