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.

I have a second blog, Writopia
which focuses on Dan Brown's pattern of falsehoods
and embellishment of his personal achievements.
Appropriating Theme Points
I'm getting bits and pieces of what is going on over in London, but the following from the NY Daily News is of interest:
'Lawyer Jonathan James, arguing for Baigent and Leigh, charged that Brown "appropriated the architecture" of "Holy Blood" and used as many as 15 of its theme points.'
And that compares with close to 100 theme points that Code appropriated from my works and several hundred more significant, specific similarities as comprehensively presented in John Olsson's analysis.
