803.9 (D) (5) Executive Producer

803.9 (D) (5) Executive Producer


The term “executive producer” usually refers to a person involved in the financing or administration of a recording. A person or entity that contributes only these types of services does not contribute copyrightable sound recording authorship and should not be named as an author. If an executive producer contributed copyrightable sound recording authorship, the applicant should describe that author’s contribution using the term “sound recording,” rather than “executive producer.”
