I shoot jpegs, and the images are my property. If the client wants to buy a CD that's another charge. By contracting with me to shoot their wedding, they don't get the rights to the imagery I shoot. I give them scaled down images, but the full resolution images are mine.

Why downscaled photos? What's the point? To sit in the basement clutching the high-res pictures.. "my preciousssss...."?

In general: Giving out the raw files is not entirely uncomplicated, but not from an economic standpoint. Editing can in some cases save a less than perfect shot, so giving out the raw file might not look that good. How would it in that case help by getting extra money? There's no logic to this. "Sure, my reputation as a photographer might be ruined if I hand out the raw files, but for just some extra cash, I'll happily do it!"
