Baigent admits some DaVinci Accusations Inflated

With the movie release still set for May 19, The DaVinci Code and its author, Dan Brown, are still knee-deep in legal accusations. As the plagiarism trial continues, however, Michael Baigent—one of the authors suing Brown—has admitted that some of his claims may have been inflated. Baigent admits that many of his claims about Brown’s novel were based not on the book itself, but on reviews; when some of these claims were dismissed by Brown’s lawyers as “simply false,” Baigent conceded that his “language was infelicitous” and his claims possibly exaggerated.

Baigent is hardly admitting defeat, however; though he admits that there are many differences between his book and Brown’s, he also asserts that there are many “fairly specific” similarities.

Meanwhile, both U.S. News and World Report and Newsweek weigh in on just how much DaVinci borrowed from Baigent’s book.
