Hi Kathi - 
My university has never done that in the 22 years I have taught here.  I know it is done, but it is wrong.  It sets a bad example.

They get nothing out of it but the prestige for the institution and the department, and that is as all the payment they need.  I know it is very different in the sciences or engineering, where patents are involved.  You shouldn't confuse that with creative works in the arts and scholarship.
