The author of a work is the person or company that produced it. In the case of employees, it may be assumed to be their employer, if the work was produced as part of their employment. Linked to models of singular genius and authenticity, the author returns from death after Derrida and asserts its copyright.

The Glossary of IP Terms was prepared by Sarah Andrew of Arts Council England.
