Work for Hire

I would hold out for portfolio rights, so that you can display it for 
the next client. Other than that, it's their money, it's their stuff, it 
  saves a lot of headaches down the road trying to be a copyright cop.
Been there done that, have the complete wardrobe.

The only issue on your cms is their recovery of their data if the 
licenseing agreement falls apart. In other words, their ability to have 
the data in a format that they can plug in somewhere, the simplest being 
comma deliminted.
