• 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.
  • 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.

Specific Concrete Abstract Reality (Sorta)

In addition to their intellectual U-turn that Code and my works are no longer thrillers but historical novels, the Random House lawyers have decided to misrepresent all the hard, specific, concrete examples of plagiarism in my filings as "abstract" or "abstractions."

I suppose if the true nature of things is inconvenient, then trying to re-define reality is the best thing they could do. The only thing, actually, other than dealing with the facts.

They are simply NOT telling the truth.

While their April 22, 2005 filing, uses "abstract" or "abstractions" at least sixteen times by page 15, they conveniently omit the very concrete, specific, NON-abstract data -- include some very suspiciously similar language and context -- starting on Page 20 of my Rule 56 Counterstatement filed on April 8, 2005.

Likewise, they overlook other hard, specific, NON-abstract comparisons of infringement previously cited in every document I have filed since they started this whole mess.

If you want the opposite of abstract, just wander through the specifics in any of these documents:
