Da Vinci Code survives allegation of copyright infringment


Last April a British Court ruled that Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown did not infringe the copyright of the 1982 book Holy Blood Holy Grail. Brown received more good news last Monday when the United States Supreme Court declined to hear another case alleging the Da Vinci Code infringed the copyright on Lewis Perdue’s book “Daughter of God.” Although various experts submitted affidavits that they believed the infringement was overwhelming, the lower court ruled that no reasonable juror could find infringement. The ruling has been upheld on appeal.
