In China, the patent law does not protect the pure game mode. While the copyright law protects computer software, how can a game based on physical cards be protected? If I design a card game and get ready to launch the market, what should I do to not be copied?
Card game characters, characters and props can be protected by copyright law; card name, some distinctive characters and item names can be protected by trademark law, and game core gameplay and game mode are currently difficult to achieve legal protection. It belongs to the "three no-reliance" area of the Patent Law, the Trademark Law and the Copyright Law. I can only get rid of imitators' plagiarism through continuous innovation.
