This is a situation addressed _specifically_ in Berne Convention copyright
law, under the heading of 'work done for hire'.  For _anything_ that falls
under the 'work done for hire' clause(s), copyright (and _title_) reses with
the party who 'hired' the work done.

Work done by a 'contractor' under a 'purchase of services' contract is 
generally _not_ 'work done for hire' (although it -may- be, depending on
the language of the contract), and thus, genenrall, copyright, etc. remains
with the person who did the work, -- *unless* the contract specifies otherwise.
