According to copyright laws, if it's a "work for hire" (i.e. they came to you for a job, hired you, and paid you) then you don't own the rights, the person who hired you does. Period. Unless you have some sort of agreement that was reached before you were hired (perferably in writing), you are out of luck. Sorry.
