I've been thinking about this for a good long time. I have an issue with deciding some plot points in my next novel and trying to figure out if I should stay with my general idea or go for a new one. I try to determine what the majority of readers would prefer better down the road. I'm thinking to myself that there's no way for me to do this unless I ask the public. My concerns here are legal issues. I have heard among other industries like the gaming industry for example, that some companies won't accept or respond to letters making suggestions for new games because in the event that they do whatever that sender of the letter suggested, that person can sue them for using their idea. I'm wondering if the same can be applied here. If I ask you which of plot ideas I should go with, this same issue down the road of me facing a lawsuit might turn up and I definitely don't want that. I was wondering if anyone can clarify this for me?
