A somewhat similar question has been settled and may perhaps provide some
guidance: who owns a (physical, not electronic) letter?  The issue comes up in
connection with publication of "collected letters of J. Doe" books and the
like.  The way this has generally been resolved is that the addressee owns the
physical copy of the letter, but the sender (or his heir) owns the copyright on
the contents.
