Genius had recently accused Google of stealing song lyrics.
Google has finally responded to the accusation
through a blog post.
It has maintained that it licenses the lyrics text from third parties.
And it does not scrape the website for those lyrics.
In the same post,
Google said that it will soon include attribution
to the third party providing the digital lyrics text.
This means you will know the source of the licensed content.
Google licenses content to help
songwriters monetize their creative work.
Let’s see how the war between Genius and Google turns out!
