Copyright rationale: the 'original' Monopoly board is now out of copyright - it was published in a US patent application back in 1935: see w:Image:DarrowPage1.png ( U.S. Patent 2,026,082). This German one has different text, and also shows the currency, but the main artistic elements are identical. It is believed that the differences that are there are not sufficient to generate a new copyright.

All five editions of Schools Wikipedia were compiled by SOS Childrens Villages. SOS Children believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. Why not try to learn more about child sponsorship?
