Presumptions in relation to authorship of work

  (1)   Section   127 applies in respect of an action brought under this Part.

  (2)   If a name purporting to be the name of the director, producer or screenwriter of a cinematograph film appeared on copies of the film that were issued when the film was made, then, in an action brought under this Part, the person whose name so appeared is, if it was his or her true name or a name by which he or she was commonly known, presumed, unless the contrary is established, to be the director, producer or screenwriter, as the case may be, of the film.
