• 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.
  • NO expert testimony was allowed despite three international plagiarism experts who were willing to testif that it existed.
  • 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.

Ahamedd Saaddoodeen.: The REAL-LIFE Puzzle in the DVCode

I received two emails this morning from France indicating that the real DVCode puzzle (as opposed to the contrived marketing stuff), is WHO is Blythe? Who is Ahamedd Saaddoodeen? Who really wrote the Da Vinci Code?

The lightly edited email, from a mathematician, offers the following (reprinted by permission):

Ahammedd = Ameddha (to praise)
Saaddoodeen= Sa'ad'ud'Din (good luck/good fortune/aid/help).

Perhaps Ahamedd Saaddoodeen is refering together as 'praising good fortune', or something along those lines. He thinks perhaps it is a hymn in a version of a bible, or a passage out of Da Vinci's note book.

The second email, from the same mathematician, offered a slightly different interpretation:

Ahameddha=to praise
= (of) the religion/faith.

Perhaps the more specific message is:

To praise Felicia of the Religion (or Faith).

So, the search for answers in the real-life DVCode puzzle is on.
