Kia Ora, this is Stick News.
The latest court case against the Da Vinci Code may have been unsuccessful. But the troubles are not over for writer Dan Brown. He’s now facing another legal battle.

This is the Da Vinci Code. The novel has sold millions world wide. Chapter one starts with Robert Langdon awaking slowly. But it’s the second sentence that’s causing the controversy. A telephone was ringing in the darkness – a tinny, unfamiliar ring.

Fifty yen the author of this book “Da Bomb” says he also started his book with a telephone ringing in the darkness. He claims Dan Brown stole his idea.

The court case is due to start next week and is expected to last months.

And that was Stick News for Monday the 3rd of April
Kia Ora.
