• Random House sued ME; not the other way around.
  • Random House filed suit to silence the facts I was posting on the web.
  • There has been NO trial on the facts, only the Random House effort to prevent a trial.
  • NO expert testimony was allowed despite three international plagiarism experts who were willing to testif that it existed.
  • The only sworn statements made under penalty of perjury are affidavits from me and my experts, nothing from RH.
  • The judge refused to consider any expert analysis.
  • Despite suing me first, Random House & Sony UNsuccessfully demanded that I pay the $310,000 in legal fees they spent to sue me.
  • Contrary to the Random House spin, I am not alleging plagiarism of general issues, but of several hundred very specific ones.
  • This is not about money. Anything I win goes to charity.

Olsson Report "Improper?"

In footnote 2, page two of Random House's April 22, 2005 filing,, they blast me for the fact that my April 8, 2005 filings focus primarily on the similarities between Code and Daughter of God.

We HAD to do this because the court imposes a 40-page limit on the number of pages that each side can file. We did not "abandon" the claims in Da Vinci Legacy as Random House erroneously claims on page 2, but because of the page limit, had to focus on one book or the other.

So RH took the opportunity to MIS-represent why we did this. And because we still support the similarities between DV Code and DV Legacy, and because Legacy is inextricably bound to Linz and DoG, Olsson's comparison is FAR from improper as RH implies.

Random House should realize that the MASSIVE number of similarities that made it necessary to choose just one book on which to focus our filing, means that there are huge issues that should be decided in a trial.

A trial they are working very hard to deny me.

And never forget, they filed first against me to shut me up. Can't we allow the truth to emerge through the free enterprise of ideas?

Or is that what they fear?
