Yes, but copyright registration is optional. Copyright of student work is held exclusively by the student unless it is subject to a provision of the College Intellectual Property Policy (this could be true for a student who is doing the bulk of their thesis or dissertation work as part of a funded position at the College). The copyright registration in ProQuest is a service that will register the work with the Copyright Office; the only additional protection this affords the student is the ability to recover financial damages if they want to pursue legal action against an act of copyright infringement. If you choose not to do this through ProQuest, you can do it through the Copyright Office. |

Creative Commons (CC) is a non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon legally and to share. The organization has released several copyright-licenses known as Creative Commons licenses free of charge to the public. These licenses allow creators to communicate which rights they reserve, and which rights they waive for the benefit of recipients or other creators. Creative Commons licenses do not replace copyright, but are based upon it. Creative Commons licensing allows the student to let users know what they can legally do with the thesis or dissertation without asking permission.
