One Response to "Book News for Monday, November 13, 2006"

The Supreme Court didn't address the substance of my case at all -- it's just that they didn't want to deal with a messy inconsistency concerning federal adjudication of copyright infringement. Thanks to that, justice in this sort of issue still depends on shopping for the right Federal Court to hear the case. That and megabucks for lots and lots of lawyers, some of which have a tenuous relationship with honesty and no respect at all for the facts. Furthermore, the Supreme Court makes mistakes all the time. Hell, it took them over half a century to correct Plessey v. Ferguson. One part of me is a little disappointed, but overall I am relieved to have this part of things over. Not having to pay Random House's $300,000+ legal fee demand was the most important issue and having Seth Mnookin and his Vanity Fair article set straight the Random House spin machine pretty well established the point I had tried to make before RH sued me. As my appellate attorney Luther Munford just said to me in an email, "I believe the petition makes it clear to anyone who cares about such things that Dan Brown and his wife certainly did copy Daughter of God in a substantial way."
