Da Vinci Code Not Guilty of Infringement!

“Da Vinci Code Declared Not Guilty of Copyright Infringement”

Thank God!

I could understand if “Holy Blood, Holy Grail” were advertised as a fictional book. But even then, I’d be leary of the lawsuit brought up, as there are very few “new” plot twists, plots or ideas. Much of creativity isn’t “what’s new” but “how do you tell it?”

But here’s a guy who tried to state that “nonfiction” was stolen for fiction. Never mind whether “Holy Blood, Holy Grail” if fact or (as I believe) fiction, the idea of nonfiction barring itself from fiction is criminal in and of itself. Imagine writing total fiction without any ripple of fact to base itself on.

Oh yeah, it’s already happened
