1. The two Claimant[size=4=]s Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh claim that the novel The Da Vinci Code (“DVC”) is an infringement of their copyright in their book The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail (“HBHG”).
2. The Claimants are two of the three authors of HBHG. The third author, Henry Lincoln is not a clai[size=4=]mant and does not participate in the claim. No point is taken about his non participation. Nor is there any claim that the Claimants’ title to sue in respect of their interests in that copyright by reason that they had been two of the three joint holders copyright.
3. DVC was written by Dan Brown who lives and works in America. The Claimants’ case [size=4=]is[size=4=] that in writing DVC he produced a book which is an infringing copy of HBHG. The Defendant to the proceedings is The Random House Group Ltd (“Random”) which is responsible for the publication of DVC in the United Kingdom. Dan Brown is not a Defendant, but Random relied upon [size=4=]his witness statements and his evidence in this action. In realit[size=4=]y Mr Brown is on trial over the authorship of DVC.
