    Hi Al,

    I’m actually working on a paper that addreses some of these issues from an intellectual property perspective (hey, that’s what I do!). My working title is: “Trademarks of Privilege: Naming Rights and the Physical Public Domain.” I’d sure be interested in hearing from folks with similar scholarly interests.

    Regards,

    Ann Bartow

    Question:

    Why does architecture not have first amendment recognition? Currently, the government appears to reserve the right to architectural expression to itself, as an administrative matter, while denying the same right of expression to individuals.

    One leading (unnamed) constitional scholar recently said that that architecture “…lacks the capacity to convey ideas…” that other forms of art and entertainment – and he included pornography in this category of art and entertainment – do.

    One other thought is that architecture affects property values and is therefore derived from the commerce clause. Racial property covenants also affect real estate values, but that does not mean that issues of race are commercial issues. In fact, we find the concept repugnant.

    Is there anyone who posts in this category who has a more credible response? I’m posting this same question as a comment to several bloggers, and if it is slightly off topic to the post that it follows, that is because it is intended to address the larger issue.

    Thanks in advance.

    Congratulations for your article!

    My name is Theofilidis Vasilis and I’m greek. I do my doctorate degree in France but I’m interested also in monument law of the US.

    I would be grateful to you if you could tell me which pages of internet contain US jurisprudence and legislation on this theme. In particular I would be interested to know about the private factors and funds regarding the protection and the valorisation of historic monuments or listed buildings.

    Thank you
