Copyright the Card Game is an open educational game resource designed to train educators, librarians and learning support staff about UK copyright law. The resource was first created in 2015 by Chris Morrison and reflects the important changes to educational copyright exceptions introduced in 2014. It was updated several times with the most recent version being created by Chris Morrison and Jane Secker and released in May 2019.

The online version of the game was developed in 2020 and is designed to be played in virtual classroom / webinar software (e.g. Zoom or Microsoft Teams) with break out room facilities. The game is designed to be played by up to 5 teams of up to 6 people (30 participants in total ) and takes delegates from copyright basics through to real world scenarios which explore the relationship between licences and copyright fair dealing exceptions.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand how copyright really works in practice in your sector
  • Encounter existing licences and the new legislative framework
  • Practice using the exceptions and licences in sector specific examples
