• 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.

I have a second blog, Writopia
which focuses on Dan Brown's pattern of falsehoods
and embellishment of his personal achievements.

Brown's Olympics Song Claims Too Hot For Bertelsmann?

Over on Writopia we discussed Dan Brown's claims to a song that other people actually wrote (No Affidavits: Too Many Indiscretions in the Closet?) where Vanessa, the ever-determined apologist for Random House has tried to explain things away like a RH lawyer, by ignoring the full story and context.

That reminded me that Brown's disproven public claim to having written an Olympics song was also on the web site of Bertelsmann, Random House's parent corporation.

That page is no longer there, too hot, perhaps. However, there are archives of old pages all over the world, and this one shows the Olympics claim plain and simple.

If Brown has so provably misappropriated these songwriters work, what does that say about his statements about mine? And why no affidavit?

It certainly shows a history of literary piracy if that's the case. Or at least lying about it, but you'd think if it was played there'd be a recording of it wouldn't there?

Hmmm, another question for Mr. Brown. On the stand. Under oath.

I looked hard far and wide and there is no mention of this song at the Olympics. It seems impossible a PR for hire would make this claim without good reason.
