Sadly, I agree with the others. You don’t have any rights in the product at all – unless you specifically withheld them. Virtually all of my video work falls into this category. I’ve got some really good stuff on the shelves, but I can’t use it. It’s the sort of thing that you do get used to. Contracts are very useful things, but frequently are overlooked when there seems little point, as the project is already agreed – in terms of when, where, how much, what for etc – ownership of copyright seems to be something we avoid expecting it to get in the way of the project, when it works the other way in most cases.
