Dan Brown in Winning Form

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:29 pm by thelawthoughts

Dan Brown is being sued again for plagarism, because a Russian author claims Brown stole his idea about Leonardo Da Vinci was a theologian.

It is a shame that people would abuse the legal system to promote themselves and ride the coattails of somebody else’s success.

I say this because there is no bloody way he will or can win this case UNLESS BROWN HAS USED A SUBSTANTIAL PART OF HIS WORK, in its FORM, rather than its content. You can’t copyright the idea that the Mona Lisa is a Christian allegory. Copyright only extends to the expression itself, not the idea.

If I were this cracker’s lawyer, I would be saying, ‘Calm down, sunshine’. Because they will get thrown out of court so fast they won’t know what hit them, along with a substantial costs order.
