Legal challenge set to delay Da Vinci Code movie

The big-screen adaptation of the best-selling book The Da Vinci Code, which features Midlothian's Rosslyn Chapel, is set to be delayed by a legal challenge. The film, which is directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard, is set to be released in Britain on May 19, but a copyright claim by the writers of a non-fiction book, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, is due in the High Court in London next week. The £10 million claim by co-authors Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, who wrote the book in 1984, is for breach of copyright on the grounds that the structure of their book was plagiarised by author Dan Brown for The Da Vinci Code.
