No, it's not 'their' work. It's the taxpayers work.
How many taxpayers can you list that are shocked that their tax dollars benefit the economy?

I do sympathize with your arguments, but scholars misappropriating the work they're being paid to do is really a very weak argument against CC BY licenses and a good example for the hubris of some colleagues.
