Once the Guild has made a final determination of credits, the company and all participating writers must abide by the Guild's decision. All advertising, publicity and, of course, on-screen credits must comport with the Guild-determined final credits. Prior to receiving the Guild's final determination of credits, the company may use what it considers to be the good faith credits in advertising and publicity.
Writers are not allowed to claim credit contrary to the Guild's final determined credits. In addition, the Guild believes that it is in the best interest of all writers that certain facts relating to any particular credit determination should remain confidential. Writers and their representatives are encouraged to report inaccurate or incorrect writing credits immediately by calling the Guild at (212) 767-7804.
