NoteThe phrase 'Work-for-Hire,' comes from U.S. copyright law. It refers to original work made by an employee within the scope of his or her job, in which copyright ownership automatically belongs to the employer. However, it can also refer to original work made by an independent contractor or a design firm, in which copyright ownership might automatically belong to the client.

- A contribution to a collective work (such as a magazine, an anthology or an encyclopedia)
- A work that is part of a motion picture or other audiovisual work (such as a website or multimedia project)
- A translation
- A supplement prepared as an adjunct to a work created by another author (such as a foreword, an appendix, or charts)
- A compilation (a new arrangement of pre-existing works, such as a catalog)
- An instructional text (whether it is literary, pictorial or graphic)
