I see that there are loads of slides available on auction on eBay. My question is copyright. Who "owns" these slides? Does copyright belong to the owner of the slide?

I believe it depends on which countries laws are applicable. I know in Australia, if I do a shoot for a client, then when he pays the bill, the copyright is owned by him/her. If I shoot a spec shot and sell the image for a particular use to a client, in this case I still own the copyright, but the client has use of the image for the particular job, unless you sign away your copyright privileges.
