I'm still getting up to speed with "The Da Vinci Code". I've not read the book yet, but aim to before the film comes out - which doesn't leave me very long. Meanwhile I've been keeping an eye on the plagiarism court case on the BBC website. The latest entry there however, is mainly about just how dull the case is. Regarding the plagiarism case I can't really see how Baigent and Leigh have much of a leg to stand on. None of the main ideas here are particularly original, it just seems to be two sensational popularists suing another for doing a better job. There's also an online discussion about the painting and the novel from BBC Radio 4's Front Row arts programme.
