    I have a copyright question?

    so I watching this cartoon and in the cartoon the charactor built an invention. Now if I were to build the same invention could i get in trouble even though its not on the market not patented and I use a diffrent name for it then on the cartoon.

    Could the network or the creators get pissed.

    Good question. In copyright law, it is a fundamental concept that ideas are not protected. There is no patent, therefore you would be free to use the same invention. But if you tried to describe the invention in order to share it with others, you would come closer to the danger zone, because the concrete manifestation (expression) of the idea may well be protected by copyright over the cartoon.
