- Make it easy(er) for the listeners to know which songs are written by which authors. I once tried to google which (if any) songs performed by the artist Birdy were written by her because she plays a lot of covers. I didn't manage to do this even when particularly looking for that information on the internet and could only guess. This should be made easy.
- Prevent cases where the majority of the public attributes certain songs to unoriginal authors due to their version being more popular and the lack of information about the origin of the song.
- Make some musicians gain more popularity (especially relevant for the rising, little-known artists) by referencing their original songs and others not to take illegit credit for songs they didn't write, in other words - make the music industry more clear and fair.
- Make it easier to trace back and solve copyright issues.
