Da Vinci Code Legal Trouble

The Scotman is reporting that there are impeding legal issues for "The Da Vinci Code." The authors of a non-fiction book about the Grail legend have a copyright claim against Dan Brown. They claim he stole the structure of their book for his. Their £10 million could potentially delay or block the release slated for May.

£10 million? That's the cost of lawsuit? £10 million stands in the way of a Ron Howard movie, starring Tom Hanks, and based on a book that people, you know, willing to read? I imagine this will be settled. -- Terrence Ryan
