A last question re 'expression of an idea': If I write a story about a goldfish and a swordfish swimming in a bowl, from the POV of the goldfish, (my 'expression' is from the goldfish POV), then I have copyright of this story once published.

The question: If someone re-writes the story FROM THE POINTS OF VIEW of BOTH the goldfish AND the swordfish the rewite doesn’t infringe my copyright since the new story, albeit based upon my idea, is a new 'expression' of this idea even if it uses the characters and situations of my original story, providing the characters are not individually copyrighted?

Am I correct?

regards

Tony Curtis
