Do people have to see the credit?
They do. Credits should be placed in a way so that people can easily find it. It doesnt have to be right in your face. The description text under a Youtube video is fine. The credit should not be obscured, but a click to get to it should be fine.
Here are some examples:
|Videos||In the video description or in the video itself.|
|Streaming (twitch, etc)||Add a music section on your profile where you place the credit. Or in an overlay or announce it live on stream.|
|Videogames||Usually under a “Credits” section in the main menu of the game. And on game website / social media.|
|Films||In the credits section of the film.|
|Live Production||In the program, or a voice announcment.|
|Podcast||Usually voice announcement, at the end of the production.|
|TV/Radio Ads||Buying a Standard License is more common for this use. However credits may be shown visually in the production, or done as a voice-over in audio-only media.|
|Background Music||Buying a Retail Location License is more common for this use. However credits may be shown in a public area of the retail location.|
I can not credit you!
This is where you get the Standard License. This usually applies for formats where credits are impractical or impossible. Usually during a television broadcast or radio commericals.
