That's lovely, I hope you get at least some deserved attention for it.

just to clarify, they asked me the permission to use it and they gave me (a little) money.
Yeah it's just when i see how many hits it got, having my name, or a link or whatever would be nice !

Well, if you make a comment under the video from your YouTube channel, we can all give a "thumbs up" to the comment and it will stay near the top!

Congrats.

Does Google give credit to any other artist they have used? Does any company for that matter? I’ve seen it but it’s a very small percentage.

But I think we live in a time when if people want to know what a song is they just bust out Shazam or Soundhound, but that doesn’t help if the song is obscure and not part of the music database…however you get a track on that.

Should they also credit the post production team, the camera operators and the guy who makes the tea?
Imagine they credited graphic designers on Coca-Cola bottles, or script writers on TV ads.

Being a musician isn't any more deserving of credit than anyone else when your art enters the corporate world.

Sure, the music is beautiful and plays an important part in that video, but Chapelier Fou, the video is not there to promote your brand.
Your music is there to promote their brand.

Most people on this forum would literally donate an organ to have Google in their client portfolio, let alone have their music exposed to 2 million people.

Hey Condra, i did not criticize anything. I am sure they totally have the right to not mention me.
It's just that when i realized how many viewers there was, i wished they put my name, that's all.

^Well, I would certainly give my appendix.

But that said, beautiful track, and well done. That's a feather in the old cap for sure.

Congrats!

on the flip side you should save the commercial and put it on your web site, good cred. put the hooks in for people looking for the source of the music.

congrats!

Great work!

If having a credit is important, then make sure to ask for it in the agreement. Anything is negotiable, but you won't get it if you don't ask. Google may be less accommodating for a request like this, but a smaller company may do it... especially if they really like the song.

*bookmark* to listen to later.

congratulations Mr. Fou. condra is right... regardless of your name being clear and visible... it's a hell of a good thing to add to your resume/list of musical accomplishments. :D
