The case against Dan Brown and the Da Vinci code by two researchers seems absurd in creative terms (no idea about the legal). A fictional writer is to be constrained by fear of a law suit if a book is successful because he or she based it on fact? We're choking creativity by being so uptight about intellectual property. Isn't there some famous quote about standing on the shoulders of others? Now there'll be a charge for doing so.
