I think this comes down to one question. Is the job “work for hire” or not?

That has some relevance in the US and NZ (for example) but it is largely irrelevant in Australia. In Australia, the ‘author’ of copyright material owns the copyright unless they is a written agreement otherwise. There are some exceptions – employees, certain recordings, family portraits, etc. but that’s the general rule.
