Yes. For example, corporations can own copyright.

They may own copyright after assignment (this is true across much of the commonwealth and in the U.S.).

In some jurisdictions, when a work is made for hire, the employer may be deemed the author and initial owner (e.g. U.S.) or just the initial owner (e.g. Canada).
