Through the Immaculate Heart,
There was a thread which got pulled with the same subject which got pulled for reasons I know. Anyway, I’ve made another and this time, I’m going to be careful what to write. Thanks to everyone who helped me and who commented on my old thread.
I’m writing a series of novels where the Blessed Virgin Mary is the main character. It is not going to be a novel version of the Blessed Virgin’s life, nor am I going to write a novel about a woman who is very similiar to the Blessed Mother set in a modern world. All I can say is that the novel is set in the present and that the Blessed Virgin will already be glorified in heaven and that I’m not gouing to make page afte rpage saying how nice and sweet and beautiful the Blessed Virgin is. Even if I am talking about the Blessed Virgin, I’d turn people off and it would be boring. I’m going to make the Blessed Virgin into a fully fleshed character and I am even going to depict her suffering alot from us and for us.
Now my problem here is that I do not know much about copyright infrigement. I am going to speak alot against politicians and I am even going to offend alot of people (who to be sincere, I do not care how much some of them pretend to be offended as I am not going to be mean or angry and many of those who I am going to speak against know that what they do is wrong. Corrupt police, the liberal and anti-catholic truth twisting media, corrupt priests and bishops who give a bad example to the good Church they are supposed to represent, Freemasons, the Illuminati, homosexuals, pro-abortion people, etc…).
I know that speaking against politicians is legal and that it is useless and unfair to sue somebody in court because he spoke against your views but, is it legal to speak against and mention books in your book? For example, I want to mention the Da Vinci code and the lies it speaks and also want to mention the author (Dan Brown). Is it legal? I also want to mention Twilight and the bad influence it has on girls and even boys.
Some language which I use may be offensive. For example, lets take the graphic novel by Frank Miller The Dark Knight Returns. I wanted to buy this novel to see it’s plot because Batman: Year One’s subject and treatment of police corruption really impressed me. But, reading the reviews, I found out that this version of Batman willingly kills people and villains and that it depicts him being the same monster which he wanted to destroy. Batman even uses guns in this story.
I could for example write a scene where some wild and fanatical comic fans make fun of one of their friends because he doesn’t like TDKR, to which he responds that he is sick of angry, bitter, angst-filled fanboys clinging to the stupid novel because it legitimizes their inability to function socially and to lead a good virtuos life. Would such a scene be copyright infrigement or at tleast be illegal? Thanks.
