Copyright the Card Game Online

Introduction to copyright law and the relationship between licences and copyright exceptions. The four ‘suits’ in the game are:
- Copyright works
 - 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.
