Can you risk all your life savings, house, and book being seized by that said small company in fees you may owe them from this? You can change the name slightly or completely if you want. Instead of Balkan Tours do THE balkann Tours or Balkans Tours, or spell Bulkans differently like Bulkahn. Do you know we have the Post, Posts, and the Post It? or the New ...

You really can't avoid having the same magical powers as other people you aren't copying the characters from the millions of anime, movies, or comic books that have fire, sonic scream, or lighting as a super power otherwise all groups would be suing one another for that basic concept. It's how your characters use these powers, what situations you write for ...

Remember, you are creating a character, not a faceless vessel for super powers. There are multiple examples of similar superpowers in different universes. Even in the same universe we can have this example (like multiple Flashes, TV Trope warning). Compare Hulk and Abomination, for example - they have essentially the same power, but as characters, they are ...

If your work infringes copyright, then it infringes copyright. The way you distribute or the money you collect does not decide whether you are infringing another's copyright. The money you collect could affect the amount of monetary damage listed in a court ruling and maybe the severity of the punishment given, but it does not affect the guilty/innocent ...

Copyright works somewhat differently depending on jurisdiction, and we can't give legal advice here, but this is a rough summary of how it tends to work: If someone translates a copyrighted work, the translation has its own copyright which belongs to the translator. However, because the translation is a derivative work of the original, the copyright holder ...

I would avoid directly tying it to any financial transaction with a net profit for you as that may open you up to litigation and would be a big check against you if there is any litigation and you assert "Fair Use" as financial gain is a big red flag. If you want to monetize your writing, you should probably look into creating your own original fiction ...

you can rename it, or you can use a disclaimer to say that "any connections between names, places, or businessess that actually exsist are entirely coincidental." if it were a bigger company like say, if your characters were going to eat at a McDonalds, that would be one thing, but if there isn't something like that and it isn't very well known, you're right,...

The premise of a story is not copyright infringement. Here are some known stories that comes to mind: A young male ant falls in love with the princess and has to save the whole colony. (Antz and A Bug's Life) A comet is on collision course with Earth and a team is sent to nuke it. (Armageddon and Deep Impact) A man arrives in a new world looking for ...

Every idea in fiction has been used to some extent a bunch of times. I've thought of ideas and had them be in Percy Jackson specifically, actually, also (so I feel your pain). Personally, I say you're fine. You reference Hindu gods, first of all, which, to my understanding, are very different from Greek, Egyptian, or any gods Rick Riordan has used in his ...

Translations are typically considered to have their own copyright protection in addition to the copyright of the original work being translated. This means that you will have to research the copyright status of whatever specific translation you are wanting to derive from, both in the country of its publication and in your own country you intend to publish ...
