1.1.1 Works identified using the name of a creator

If it is a work with a single personal writer, composer, painter, photographer, compiler or other type of creator, or a work for which one person or corporate body is represented as being principally responsible, identify the work using the name of that person or corporate body in conjunction with the title. If several creators are listed, consider the one named first as being represented as being principally responsible. Use the rules in Section 7 to determine the identifier for a creator used in a name-title work identifier. If it is not a work with a single creator represented as being principally responsible, identify the work using the title alone (see 1.1.2).
