Where is Gordon when we need him?
If you're referring to that poster, we never need him.  Hopefully he's back to being overemployed doing insurance commercials. - DvF

These policies vary a lot. Cleverer universities split the money with the faculty inventors in order to give an incentive for commercialization. My university has a whole division of tech transfer, IP stuff. I'd imagine that most research universities will have such an office. They would be the people who can tell you the exact policy if you can't find out otherwise.

Our policy is on our website and splits the money 1/3 to the faculty member as the default but this could go as high as 2/3 to the faculty member. So the policy could be on the university's website.
