Copyright training with a difference!

Copyright: the Card Game

This session provides guidance in an innovative, interactive and fun way, to becoming more confident about copyright, and copying and re-using resources in the context of teaching. It is a team game which has been widely played at universities all over the world (most recently, to my knowledge, in Uruguay), and it has been known to get very competitive!

The game will cover what sort of material is covered by copyright law, what copyright protects and what use can be made of copyright material, copyright exceptions (what the law allows to be copied for specific purposes), and the role of licences (such as the CLA licence) in making content available to students.

It will be presented by Stephen Penton, who is responsible for copyright at City, and copyright expert and one of the developers of the game, Jane Secker.

If you would like to experience copyright in a totally new light, please come along! We need enough people for at least two teams.

  • Time: 12-1.30pm Please bring your own lunch!
