Brown Vindicated

The copyright case against Dan Brown was decided in his favor today. Two historians had accused him of plagiarizing their non-fiction book for The Da Vinci Code. But the judge ruled that though Brown did copy bits from the historians' book, it did not amount to breach of copyright.

For movielovers, this means that the film version of the book can open as planned at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17 :-)

:) yes.. I am not sure if it was all that controversy which attracted me towards the book or the content itself.

But i enjoyed reading angels n demon and da vinci..the fortress was ok i guess.. But it all followed the same theme more or less. So.. I guessi would have enjoyed it more if i had spaced them out more.

something related to this---i'm visiting my folks here in memphis this amma wanted to attend this play "the substitute" at the local was an impressively-mounted production abt Christ...adhula at the end, the pastor made an announcement where he asked patrons to stay away from the movie :-) he actually was talking abt this for close to 5 mins, saying that Howard's movie was highly 'inaccurate' and that it must be avoided like the plague...
remember reading abt a lot of controversy surrounding both Scorsese's brilliant "Last Temptation of Christ" and of course, Gibson's "Passion of the Christ."
