Copyright ownership is not purely a function of authorship. If you write a
manual, you may or may not, own the copyright. If you want to be certain, be
sure to put it in the contract before you do the work. Even if you own the
copyright, you still have to go to court to prevent someone from using your
work. This will generally take time and cost money.
