code signing cert for personal use??

Can an indidivial not get a code signing cert? Do you have to have a company?

From reading various blogs and forums I had the impression that I could get a code signing cert as an individual. In fact when I applied for one here at Comodo I was initially told:

[i]"If the order has been applied for in your own personal name or the order is not for use by a commercial entity:

Copy of your drivers license or passport"[/i]

So I scanned my drivers license and provided it. But today I receive a reply:

“Code sign cert would need to be based on a company and not for personal used. Please send us information based on a company that you work / own so we can further process validation.”

Looks like I must create a company to sign. :-\
