The title and the fact it was set in Alaska seemed very familiar. I researched the list of books I have already read and saw I read The Great Alone by Janet Dailey quite a few years ago. It was an amazing book. How can another writer give her book the same title? Don't the copyright laws protect that?
Jen Hires Just as there are many song names that are the same, so goes for book titles. As long as the subject matter, plot, themes and ideas are completely different, I highly doubt it matters what the title is. Why would there be laws against that? If there were, it would be very difficult for any creative out there titling his or her work.
