beer good said:True, but aren't they publishing it as a work of non-fiction - ie. they claim it is or may well be a historic fact? The way I understand it, you can only have copyright to something you yourself made up, not something which existed independently of you before you discovered it. Can Pythagoras claim copyright to right triangles, or Newton to gravity?
Never mind. I suppose the court will eventually decide. Either way, both Baigent, Leigh and Brown make a lot of money.
Not from me. I'm not buying the book or watching the movie.
