Copyright law protection
Copyright law only protects the expressions of ideas and not ideas, as it is very generic. For instance, If the existence of Willy the Wizard did not prevent J. K. Rowling from writing Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fact that Harry Potter is copyright protected should not prevent you from writing your own novel about a young wizard. You just need to add your skill, labor, judgment, and effort to your story and make it substantially different from J. K. Rowling’s work. However, in some cases – such as two people taking a picture of the same object – the line between ideas and expression of ideas is really hard to define.
