On Friday, it was announced that Dan Brown has won a court ruling against author Lewis Perdue who claimed his book THE DA VINCI CODE copied elements from two of his books. The suit was for $150 million in damages.

Perdue had claimed CODE infringed on the copyright of his novels DAUGHTER OF GOD and THE DA VINCI LEGACY, and that Brown had copied the basic premis of DAUGHTER.

The N.Y. judge presiding over the case stated "a reasonable average lay observer would not conclude that 'The Da Vinci Code' is substantially similar to 'Daughter of God'."
