Good point, StephenC. what are the Trinity academics doing, watching flashy American movies?

Re copyright: a handful of organisations and architects have made moves to protect the image of their buildings – particularly the photos that are circulated. The Bilbao Guggenheim tried this, and failed. Nick Grimshaw discussed it in relation to the Eden Project, but I think found it to be a legal minefield and gave up.

And the brokers at Lloyd’s of London found that they were not allowed to issue images of their building – only Richard Rogers was allowed to do that.

It’s a funny one. Architects do indeed have copyright over their designs, but then since their buildings are in the public realm where anyone can take a photo, there’s not much they can do about it.

In Trinity’s case, there is no living architect for the old library, so I think they’re on a hiding to nothing anyway.
