Academia/ Higher Ed, Intellectual Property, Publishing

Is intellectual property free?

The assumption that people are paid by public funding for doing research seems to me somewhat misleading. This is true of certain fields and certain universities, namely, the ones with strong political support. If authors will need to pay for publishing in OA, which is a commonplace business model, then wouldn’t this allow only well-paid scholars at wealthy institutions to publish in “prestige” OA (whatever that is going to mean!)?  Or, if universities pay for it, why wouldn’t they seek control over content?
