If a work is "made for hire" within the meaning of the Copyright Act, the employer or other person who ordered and financed the work is deemed the author for copyright purposes. There are only two ways in which a work may be found to be a work for hire. First, if the work was prepared by an employee within the course and scope of her employment. Second, works created by independent contractors may be works for hire if: (1) the work fits into one of nine enumerated categories and (2) the parties have expressly agreed in a written, signed instrument that the work will be considered a work made for hire.
If you have any other questions, please call me at the number below for a free consultation.
I hope that this helps!
