This paper discusses the case whereby Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, authors of 'The Holy Blood' and the 'Holy Grail', recently sued Random House, the publishers of the best-selling novel, 'The Da Vinci Code', written by Dan Brown. According to the paper, Baigent and Leigh alleged that Brown had infringed copyright law in 'The Da Vinci Code', by appropriating the architecture of 'The Holy Blood' and the 'Holy Grail'. Interestingly, both books were published by the same publishing house, so that Baigent and Leigh were in effect suing their own publisher.
