Learn how to credit Musiversal artists, and all about your rights.
We request that you credit Musiversal recordings/productions everywhere you publish your music.
We kindly recommend that you use the following structure:
- Vocals - Jacob Khalil (via Musiversal)
- Cello - Joe Zeitlin (via Musiversal)
- Drums - Nate Barnes (via Musiversal)
- Mastering - Luiz Tornaghi (via Musiversal)
- Strings - Prague Orchestra (via Musiversal)
- I.e. Instrument/ Service - Artist Name (via Musiversal)
Crediting is compulsory when songs or tracks that use Musiversal recordings are submitted for awards. If there is no option to enter credits upon submission, that's okay, as long as if/ when the song wins an award and is shared or distributed, it's important to make sure the awarding party responsible distributes/ shares the song(s) with the appropriate credits.
In the case of music department credits, such as in the film industry, Musiversal should be credited according to industry standards.
