Who's talking about ideas? I'm talking about a book, with a plot and defined characters... those are indeed copyrightable.

If you rename all the characters and shuffle around the plot, you'd probably win in court. ;)

Hmm, I wouldn't be SO sure. You know, I'm sure, that certain algorithmes have been copyrighted. If you say the Torah is an algorithme to live one's life... and then there are laws concerning moral and intellectual property.

Case law would mostly seem to go the other way.

But I think we've gone way off topic here.
