Copy Right Act_11

Can a company be considered the author? Can an author and owner be different from one another?

A company can never be considered as an author of a work. However, it can become the owner, if the author creates the work within the scope of an employee's duties. A distinction between contract of employment and contract for services. In the first case the employer becomes the owner and in the second case the author becomes the owner.
