I don't fin a proper definition of "person" in all this. A "person" is a legal role, not the actor who plays the role. Each individual or corporate actor can play many roles at the same time, each with its own rights, powers, and duties.

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts....
