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.

    I really don't know whether it is funny or not - Zuckerberg stole the ideas to begin with and seems like some sorta of silly justice that he face a similar problem

    LOL......did you read it? A man changed his name legally to Mark Zuckerberg, so Mark Zuckerberg from facebook is threatening to sue the new Mark Zuckerberg.

    OK now i get it. I thought that the real Mark Zuckerberg was originally Rotem Guez and changed his name and that he was being sued by facebook.

    Funny in sort of a sad way. The fact that someone would go thru all that trouble to change their legal name, knowing that Facebook would file a lawsuit to try and change it is pretty pitiful on Guez's part. He was violating clearly stated policy, and as retaliation he changed his name?
    lame dude
