I see what you are saying but work for hire cannot be implied, it has to be explicitly written in the agreement. There is no confusion when you are doing a job "Work for Hire."
Other then that copyright has to also be released. I am not sure what sort of copyright infraction we are leading to.

AND the work must fit into the nine categories specified by the law, or it still won't pass muster as "work for hire." If it doesn't fit within those categories, the contract must explicitly state that the copyright is being transferred to the commissioner/employer.

This doesn't mean the photographer is always free and clear, though. Copyright is a federal matter. Depending on the agreement (written and otherwise) there can still be some state court issues, such as having made a "bad faith" agreement or misrepresentation or issues regarding payment, et cetera. Conceivably, the photographer could own the copyright but be enjoined against using it for other reasons.

I personal wouldn't worry about it, make sure you have it in the contract that the client has choosen not to have no back up copies available. Like everyone said, do your job, get paid and be done!

If it bothers you, then charge a little extra for having to let them erase them. I wouldn't worry with it, do the shoot and get paid.
