I don't see it that way. If I'm employed by a company,
either as an employee or a contractor, I do the work
and I'm paid for it. What they do with it after that
is up to them. If they win an award for it, cool. I
don't care if I'm not given credit, as long as someone
who had nothing to do with it isn't given the credit.
A company can represent material as the company and as
long as I'm paid for it, I'm done with it.

Saves alot of moaning and groaning from my end, too.

It might be nice, but from my end, it's not required.
