Pete,

I have (somewhere) a copy of the US Supreme Court ruling that says that if

is no written agreement between consultant and client regarding copyright that 
the code belongs to the author (the consultant).  This dates back about 8+ 
years, 
so I don't know if any other ruling has superceded it.
