I am researching how the Dickens story A Christmas Carol can be used in other pieces of writing. In particular, I am writing a script for web-based training, and I am using the scenario of what Scrooge does the day after Christmas.
Characters referred to are Scrooge, his nephew, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim.
I think that since the story is in the public domain, I can use the characters and build on the plot. Is this correct?
