Copyright for Games

by Diane

I would like to hold a Murder Myster Game in our country town in Australia. Can you tell me if I was to charge people an entry fee to come along would I need to get some sort of license regarding copyright and if so where would I get this license from.

My response:

Most of the publishers have a commercial license (normally about five times the price of the regular game, but the publishers do vary) which allows you to run the game and charge a fee.

Once you've decided which game you are interested in, I suggest you contact the publishers direct and they'll sort you out.

(Do mention me!)
