While I don’t have any links to the relevant material I can say that yes this is true. Its not usually widely discussed around campus but those in the know have always said that project/course work remains the copyright of DCU. However from what I have heard there has never been a case where the university has failed to relinquish this copyright if the student wishes to continue work on it once leaving college…

Personally I have always assumed its similar to the agreements signed with software companies upon employment whereby anything you develop remains the copyright of your employer as they deem that you have gained the skills to develop that code thanks to them. Obviously this seems a little unfair since its a institution whose aim it is the teach us this material but I’m sure there could be a different reason for it…
