Atty. Mark Robert Dy, creative industries lawyer from Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines, discussed the history and nature of copyright. He also focused on the works of Rizal as the Philippines celebrate his 150th year to emphasize the role of copyright in the nation building.

Professor Vivencio Talegon, Jr. from the Filipino Department introduced the second speaker, Ms. Francisco.

Karen Francisco, the only female writer of the Visprint Publishing, shared important tips on crafting interesting reading materials.
