I'm a high school senior and one of the final projects for AP Environmental Science is to create an environmental board game, and I'm starting to worry that I might accidentally do something illegal. The teacher says it'd be awesome if i made a video game instead of a board game, but now that I've gotten the coding down and am ready to begin creating the board and cards, I'm getting worried about copyright laws. The project rubric, which is written for board games rather than video games, says I can use any images I want within the "question cards" and "problem cards" as long as I include a photo credit. Could I get sued for using copyrighted images in the video game, even though I'm making the game as a graded high school project and not charging any money? My second concern is about using Unity to make something for a school. I know you're not supposed to use the free version of unity for commercial purposes if your game's revenue, or the revenue of your organization, exceeds $100K. I'm making the virtual board game first and foremost as an assignment given to me by the teacher, but due to the nature of the project, it is possible (unlikely, but possible enough to be a concern to me) that the game could be a useful review tool to pretty much any AP Enviro teacher with internet access and a computer, due to the fact that I will be making my game based on standardized content. Would there be any problems for me, the creator, if other teachers can download and play the game with their students? My third concern is about using questions directly from the AP Environmental Science textbook and/or those AP books which are designed to prepare students for the AP exam (both of which the teacher provides). When a student lands on a question space, they get asked the question and get a boon if they're correct and debuffed if they're incorrect. I'm pretty sure I'd be fine using the questions from the book in my game if I were making a board game, since nobody other than the teachers at the school would ever know about the game and the fact that I copied the questions. However, a video game, and the questions within, might be accessible to anyone with a computer, and someone would eventually notice that I copied questions from the books. I am not charging any money for the project, but would there still be danger of getting sued and losing in court if i use questions straight from the book? Or would I have to create my own questions? Sorry for the long post. I can't seem to find any forums by AP students considering using Unity to make a video game in place of a board game for a graded project.
