Well, my story is about Dragon Riders. So, as a paranoid pessimist I was wondering- Is writing about Dragon Riders considered plagiarism? Can the use of the concept of People atop Dragons be termed as plagiarism or infringement of Rights? I think that it should be free to use, as I feel it would be something like putting a hold on things such as Wizards, Vampires etc. The thought just fell into my head, so I'm kind of taken aback by this. Mine is urban fantasy with technology sci-fi and Fantasy with Magic. I've only heard or known of few works with Dragons Riders or a concept close to that. -Pern Books By Anne McCaffrey -Inheritance Cycle By Christopher Paolini- This is the only one I've read. -Termeraire Books By Naomi Novik The latter uses Dragons as tools of war with Aviators controlling them. The Series of Pern's books are about Dragon Riders(unless I'm mistaken- I haven't read them). Help in this matter is appreciated.
