From what I was lead to believe in various discussions with pro photographers in Canada, unless otherwise agreed to, the person who commissions the photographs (client, employer, etc) owns the copyright. Pretty much the opposite of here in the US.

Found this interesting so I looked into it. Here's what I found:

Under Section 13(2) of the Act, any person or corporation that hires a photographer (commissions a work) will automatically own the copyright in that work, once the work has been paid for UNLESS there is an agreement to the contrary.

Registering the images is very cheap something like $ 35 for as many 100k images you can stick on a DVD. The difference is when an image is not registered you can only sue for actual damages like cost of producing image and how much they would have had to pay you for purchasing the image.

Is there anything like this in the UK?

OK, I've answered my own question. Just found this site ...

Seems they have the same setup as in the US, one off fee for registered loads of pictures at the same time ... Seems to be a LOT more expensive to do this in the UK than the US ... surprise, surprise. Rip off Britan ...

Registration only costs $35 and 15 minutes ones time. What does Smith & Wesson cost and how does it work?

Sig Sauer P229, better choice ;)

Either way, Wow! Thats going to be an expensive registration! Shooting an unarmed infringer; $400-700 plus ammo for initial 'registration fee', plus $100K in legal fees for murder defense, plus another $500-100K in legal fees for the civil suit (which if lost could be another few million), then 15-25yrs when convicted.

Damn, that $35 registration fee is starting to look pretty good :) :)

Yes, it really it. They have made it rather simple and easy to do, and kept the costs down to something reasonable. That's a feat for our government :)

Wow, Drumroll please... So this has finally been resolved. It took a while to get all the details ironed out such as printing, mounting, installation...
Details with the local franchise:
1. paying me a very reasonable sum of cash for the first 2 poor images (which were printed from 100k web sized files)
2. using seven more of my images of various student athletes, replacing the first 2. I now upload to their FTP site full size TIFFs (paid for all 7)
3. offering to replace all seven at repeated intervals throughout the school year (repeatable cash flow)
4. offering to place my business card holder by the soda self serve station (advertising)

Overall it took longer than I thought it should but by being patient and respectful we worked out a great deal for both sides. Thanks to everyone for sharing some laughs and some helpful information.
BTW, No lawyers were involved
