Do I need to do anything special with COM objects in .NET list?

Just checking, can't Google any definitive answer, say I'm doing
something like this:

IList<IUnknown>comObjList = new IList<IUnknown>();
IUnknown comObject = Activator.CreateInstance(...); // COM object eg:
VB dll, c/c++ etc.
comObjList.Add(comObject);

When comObjList goes out of scope, the COM object should be garbage
collected. Is this right? I don't have to do some funky add/remove
reference count from the COM object right?

Ta,
Vic
