schriftstellerische Arbeit, bei der das Urheberrecht nicht beim Autor sondern beim Verlag verbleibt


Explanation:
\"Works for hire\" in the context of copyright law means that the author sells the work outright and does not retain the copyright. The copyright remains with the publisher.

I would translate it as

schriftstellerische Arbeit, bei der das Urheberrecht nicht beim Autor sondern beim Verlag verbleibt.

Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me for further information.

Explanation:
Work that is done just for the payment, according to the instructions of the hirer. What Nina says is certainly right and the above is just a term for what she describes.
