Charging an Intellectual Property transfer fee for design work?

So, you've finished a design job (eg. a logo design) and the client asks for your IP surrounding the logo, eg copyright, original artwork files, notes, sketches, all of that stuff that went into creating the finished piece. Do you charge for this transfer? If so, how do you calculate your fee (eg. XX% of the value of the project, or perhaps a flat fee of $XXX)Do you also hand over just the work that went into creating that finished concept, or do you hand over all of your alternate concept designs and ideas as well?
