Legal constraints for displaying song lyrics in streaming

edited September 2020 in General Discussion
For several months now (!Covid19!) we have been broadcasting our worship live.
We use an OLP custom view to embed the song lyrics during worship.
The solution works perfectly (thanks to OLP) but ... it's not legal in France and most probably in some other countries..
Copyright law requires that you also display the title, author(s), publisher(s) and year of publication.
The title is well provided in the API /api/service/list and can be displayed.
But I couldn't figure out how to get the other information.
Is this possible in JSON?
If not, is it possible otherwise?
If still not, will version 3.0 provide this capability?
If still not, is it possible to add this possibility in a future version?
Thanks for your help.

May I generalize the request to make available from /api/service/list as much as possible of information recorded for a song and also bible. This will open a lot of doors for custom view.
