Can you write Kindle Books about any kind of famous thing?

Hi if you write a Kindle book about a move or a product or a famous person is that seen as copyright infringement or is it OK to write your own unique book about something? I hope you get the question, any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hey,

    I went and found this pretty neat article that I thought would help you out tremendously!

    It gives over 100 profitable niches on what you can write your kindle book about.

    Personally, I would stick to my own idea rather than someone else's idea to avoid copyright infringement.

    Hope this helps!

    You can write about anything as long as it’s not hurtful to others and doesn’t cause any controversy or copy write infringement; just make it interesting, very amusing and moving.

    Hi,

    It really depends on what you are writing, as you can always argue "fair use" for example a review, news story etc. But if you wanted to write a fiction novel featuring Harry Potter you couldn't do that, but a news or biography or something like that about Harry Potter actors you could.

    Fair use / copyright is a bit tricky. So unless you are sure I would stay away from it, because in respect of Kindle if you breach copyright Amazon will close your account and keep your royalties.
