Copyright the Card Game

June 19 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Copyright the Card Game logo

Embed and further your understanding and knowledge of copyright through discussion and play with ‘Copyright the Card Game’.

Instead of focusing on aspects of the law and thinking about what copyright might stop people from doing, ‘Copyright the Card Game’ encourages on four positive aspects to copyright.

It is based on working in teams to tackle a number of common scenarios.This afternoon session will involve working in collaboration as together you work through the cards and questions to win points and develop your copyright confidence.

The four ‘suits’ in the game are:

  • Copyright works – what is the material that someone wants to use? Is it protected by copyright and how is it defined in the law?
  • Usages, or what the law calls the ‘restricted acts’ that are the exclusive right of the copyright holder. How does what you want to do with a work map onto the usages as defined in the law?
  • Licenses – how do licences work? What licences are available and how might they be used to enable you to go beyond what the law might allow
  • Exceptions – what copyright exceptions exist in the UK and how can you make better use of them


Use this session to build on and embed your existing knowledge, as a refresher, or inspiration!
