Quite simply - personal clients of retain complete and unconditional copyright ownership of their own photographs.
You may copy the DVD-ROM, print images or transmit files electronically as often as desired.

What the law says...

• if the photographs were taken for “private or domestic purposes” (such as family portraits, or wedding
photographs), the first owner of copyright in them is the client, unless the photographer and client agree

Who owns the negatives?

Ownership of a physical negative, transparency or CD-ROM is determined by general property law and not copyright law. The owner of a negative is usually the person who paid for the film on which the negative image appears. Ownership of copyright in the photographs is separate from the ownership of physical items, such as the prints, negatives or digital files. Your agreement with the client should cover these issues.
If the client owns copyright in the photographs, he or she may make copies from prints in his or her possession. A photographer may own negatives but this does not entitle him or her to make further prints without the copyright owner’s consent.
