Open Scholarship: Copyright the Card Game

Join Chris Morrison (Copyright & Licensing Specialist) and Rachel Scanlon (Subject Librarian for Physical and Applied Sciences) to play Copyright the Card Game. This interactive, games-based session introduces you to the key concepts of copyright law and allows you to apply them in practice. No prior knowledge is required, and the session caters for all whatever their level of experience with copyright. At the end of the session participants will be able to: explore how copyright really works in practice; interpret the legislation and apply the relevant legal concepts to their own work; practice using the exceptions and licences in sector-specific examples; and discuss the role of risk management in making decisions about the ethical creation and use of copyright material.

Intended audience: The session will be of benefit to anyone who works with copyright material on a regular basis including researchers, lecturers, students, librarians, learning technologists, research support staff and other professional services colleagues.
