YouTube Shorts creators can now use copyrighted music

San Francisco: YouTube has announced that short video creators will soon be allowed to feature up to one minute of copyrighted music in their videos.

The video-streaming platform said that its short-form creators will be able to use between 30 and 60 seconds of licensed music "for most tracks", reports Engadget.

However, some songs will continue to be limited to 15 seconds, with licensing agreements determining which tracks fall into which window.

In the YouTube app's audio picker, creators can quickly see how much time each song allows.

As the popularity of user-created videos has grown over the last decade, aggressive DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act, a 1998 US copyright law) takedown notices have become a headache for streamers across all platforms, according to the report.

In September, the company announced an ad-revenue-sharing programme that will give qualified creators a 45 per cent cut of ad revenue, regardless of the use of music.

The song limit boost is a strategy by the company to entice the users of TikTok, one of the leading competitors of Shorts.
