Quality of Life
This probably won't add to the quality of your life - so I've been hesitant - but finally decided all info re: Da Vince Code could be relative.I replied as follows:
Tonight on E Entertainment (cable channel) they will rerun Forbes 100 celebrities "Who Made Bank."
Brown is # 11 - I think. The list starts at 100 and goes to 1.
Anyway, the commentators talk about the 100 million Brown made and refer to the lawsuit.
Unfortunately, they seem to think there's humor in it.
I don't remember the exact words they used when referring to the book's success, but it went something like:
This is what happens when someone sues you OR you shouldn't sue someone over a book because this is what happens.

"Thanks ... it doesn't affect me one way or another ... I have SO gotten over that ... plus, the money thing is pretty irrelevant. My wife and I already give a lot to charity and live very simply. I do not see a large amount of $$ changing that. I have always been afraid of things ... when you accumulate things, they begin to own you ... you start to live your life around those things and make decisions designed to protect those things ... that cuts off options and closed doors on creativity ... things, wealth, money, status, fame -- all that's gone in a blink of eternity. Things are not what count.
