Copyright is a form of intellectual property law that safeguards authorship, by granting the creator of the original work exclusive rights to determine if and how the original work may be used by others. Copyright questions the definitions of authorship | similarity | infringement | ownership | exclusivity | sharing | homage | referencing | credit | resemblance | individuality | influence | inspiration… all of which are inherent and integral to the nature of the architectural profession and portfolio at the AA.

Each lecture presents fragments of material from Quotidien and AArchitecture issues, through the invitation of authors of articles that have been submitted to either publication, as well as other guests whose work might be relevant to the theme of the lecture. The lectures aim to generate conversation between and amongst students, through the following themes; Recognition, Copyright and Esoteric, that we feel are especially pertinent to students in the AA, but also adequately addressed within the school community. Each lecture proposes to bring together 4-5 guest speakers who would present his or her work, in slides of text and visual images, and how it relates to the relevant theme  for approximately 5 minutes, before a general 30 minute roundtable discussion that will be chaired and moderated by one of us, that is open to the audience and other students to participate and ask questions as well.
