Dan Brown victorious over 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail'

After reading The Da Vinci Code and Holy Blood, Holy Grail, it's hard to believe Dan Brown, author of the former title, won the UK plagiarism trial.

The devil is in the details -- copyright infringement and writing along a very similar theme are two different things, it seems. It's funny that the whole thing involves a wardrobe malfunction of epic (and biblical) proportions.

One thing is certain; the theme in those books is correct, as the painting below clearly shows. It's one of Leonardo Da Vinci's early renderings of The Last Supper.
