British court battle over 'The Da Vinci Code'

Here is the link

LONDON (AFP) - The author of the blockbuster novel "The Da Vinci Code" faces an English High Court challenge Monday from two men who claim he stole their ideas.

Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh are suing their own publishers, Random House, claiming Dan Brown's book draws heavily on their 1982 bestseller "Holy Blood, Holy Grail".

I normally stay away from the whole Da Vinci Code thing. But when I heard about the Da Vinci Code I said, "Isn't that Holy Blood, Holy Grail." Yes...yes it is. I read "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" when I was fourteen and thought, "well, this does not make any sense. This research isn't even coherent."

So it will be interesting to see what the courts say.
