Music copyrights have been an issue for a long time for youtube content creators. Mainly because most of the music already present on youtube is copyright protected. And creators require permissions from music creators to use them in their videos.

But whats the loss here? Why does a youtube content creator need to put copyright-safe songs in his video? The answer is simple, monetization. Monetization does not apply to those videos that have copyright claims on them. Whether that be video or music content inside a video, you simply cannot monetize someone else's work without having their permission.

So, to resolve this issue several music artists on youtube started uploading copyright-safe songs on their youtube channels and requested that users give them credits for it by posting their channel link in their video's description.

Although the issue was resolved to some extent but the resources were limited and didn't have much variety. Also a lot of music creators started selling royalty free music but youtube came up with a solution of its own. A solution that would solve both these small issues, i.e., it would be free and youtube content creators would not need to put the URL of the music creator's channels in their videos.
