IMDb policy for this, as I see it, do not care about what is under the name used in actual credits. It's not good, not bad, just is as it is ))

How producers let the titles to be designed -- this, sometimes, may be really out of logical understanding. It may be a clever joke, a kitsch, a vulgarity, a platitude, whatsoever. Should the policy be changed in view of this?

If you don't get "It". ACT_1, there is no hope for you. Or maybe you are to young to understand it.
You had to be around and at least 10 years old in 1984, to understand the documentary. And if you were, and you don't understand, then you must've been a bookworm. You weren't there if you had no Air's. They were a fashion statement.

Cool, I did not see the word "Shoe" in your reply, as I glossed over your response.

...but "whatsoever" is there. Do you really need this to be explained for each existing thing that could happen in titles? Where we start: Webster or Britannica? )))

And ACT_1's posts are always cryptic. It is hard enough to get him to actually just use words. So he uses as little as possible. It makes sense to him. But unless you speak "His" language, getting what he means is hit or miss at best.
You caught his "Meaning". Hats off to ya. But see what ACT_1 caused Peter to do? He went off researching the Company Music Box! ACT_1's post should have been specific instead of cryptic. Title should have been.......

Air Jordan1 ... is it an Actor Name or a Company??

And if he knew anything about the history the shoe industry he would have never asked the company part in the question at all. Air Jordans were a part of the culture "Worldwide" 35 years ago.

Also If the Name or Company thing was the important part here, then why on earth is it the 5th link on the list? It should have been first link followed by the title link.
Two links was all that was needed.
And why did he not do a contribution and submit it to remove the JOKE name page?
It does not follow guidelines.

MusicBox may be a company, possibly this one, but I can't tell for sure:

Music Box [US]
https://pro.imdb.com/company/co0233543/

The film's official site instead says executice music producers are called The Boom Clack:

Hi there -

To clarify, please note that we do list credits for non-human performers when they are credited on-screen and have performed a character role, for example:

Wilson the Volleyball
Herbie
Robby the Robot
Otto
Kermit the Frog

If "AirJordan1" was credited in the cast section of the film, and doesn't refer to a person, it is still eligible to be listed on the site with a filmography. 

For "MusicBox", this sounds more like a grouped name for several individuals, possibly a company.  If this refers to individuals and they can be identified, the credit should be given to their names with the credit attribute "as MusicBox".

Unfortunately, our statistics currently don't distinguish a person from a non-person, as we group all name pages on the site together in this reporting. Although I'm not sure when this suggestion will be addressed, I have filed a ticket for the appropriate team to review concerning name page identifiers for person vs. non-person and to request that our statistics reporting reflect the differentiation
