PLEASE READ THESE FACTS FIRST:

  • 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.

Yet Another Reality Disconnect

On Page 11, line 16 of Random House's April 22, 2005 filing, they make a bogus claim about "charts of common historical facts."

That sentence reads, "In the end, Perdue's heavy reliance on charts of common historical facts discussed in the two books only demonstrates his profound misunderstanding of the copyright law."

Well garsh m'am!

I'm just a novelist not a lawyer. I write thrillers ... or historicals depending on your own mood and need to fabricate an argument.

And while I may profoundly misunderstand copyright law, I'd be willing to bet my attorneys whom you've gratuitously insulted certainly DO know copyright law.

But more to the point, I DON'T HAVE ANY CHARTS OF COMMON HISTORICAL FACTS!

Where did Random House come up with this? Did they get this case mixed up with another one?

And even more to the point: Without an affidavit from the creators of The Da Vinci Code attesting to their research, there is not a SHRED of legally credible evidence that they even DID any research.

Reality check, folks!
