Ghost Writer, Penulis Bayangan

aGhostwriter is a person who is hired to author books, manuscripts, speeches, songs, or other texts are officially credited to another person. Such as for celebrities, executives, participants in timely news stories, also political leaders often hire ghostwriters to draft or edit autobiographies, memoirs, or other written material. In music, ghostwriters are often used to write songs, including lyrics and instrumental pieces. Istilah yg mungkin masih asing dalam khasanah Indonesia, namun telah populer disebut Penulis Bayangan. Secara profesi sebetulnya telah marak dan syah menurut transaksi legal, selain praktek kotor seperti kasus “joki” saat ujian. Selanjutnya dapat ditinjau dari dua aspek, berupa pihak “script-writer” (skenario awal hingga nulis naskah), dan “copy-writer” (mengurus aspek produksi, distribusi, publikasi). Bagi pihak pemesan jasa setelah selesai urusan administrasi sesuai kontrak, akan meng-klaim produk sbg pemilik resmi dan berlaku hak penuh sbg pengarang (as an author) berikut royalti. (nDy)
