Is the copyright holder the same as the author of a work?


Sometimes, but not necessarily. The copyright holder may be the author of the work or possibly the publisher (e.g. if the author has signed over copyright).

In most cases, copyright of a published work is held by the publisher unless an author has exercised the option to retain some rights through an author’s addendum or through other licensing arrangements such as Creative Commons.
