Facebook threatens to sue Mark Zuckerberg, (Really) Funny or Not?
First the Winklevoss twins sued Mark Zuckerberg. Now, it looks like Facebook is poised to do the same.
Facebook is threatening to sue Mark Zuckerberg, an Israeli entrepreneur who recently changed his name from Rotem Guez to "Mark Zuckerberg," according toZuckerberg's site MarkZuckerbergOfficial.com.
"No it is not a joke," Zuckerberg wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "I am now legally Mark Zuckerberg, and it's for the next 7 years :)"
The twisted tale of Zuckerberg vs. Zuckerberg started after Zuckerberg, formerly Guez, launched a Like Store that sold Facebook "likes" to companies, a transaction that violates the social networking site's policies.
First, Zuckerberg, formerly Guez, sued Facebookover its failure to return his "hacked" profile. Next, a lawyer from Perkins Coie representing Facebookwrote a letter to Zuckerberg, then Guez, in September, warning him to "immediately stop your activities." The lawyer asked Zuckerberg to confirm before Sept. 5, 2011 that he had "stopped and will not in the future access Facebook's site, services, platform, or network for any reason whatsoever," among other stipulations.
