It will be interesting to see the outcome of this lawsuit as the "Star Trek" Uniforms are shed, the "Dance of Death" ensues for the "Gauntlet of Geekdom" has been thrown down."KKKHHHAAAANNNN!!!"
Sort of reminds me of the Bill Gates Miscrosoft vs Everyone Lawsuit a decade ago.
BOSTON -- The owners of a rival social networking website are trying to shut down Facebook.com, charging in a U.S. federal lawsuit that Facebook's founder stole their ideas while they were students at Harvard.
The three founders of ConnectU say Mark Zuckerberg agreed to finish the computer code for their site, but repeatedly stalled and eventually created Facebook using their ideas.
The lawsuit's allegations against Zuckerberg include fraud, copyright infringement and misappropriation of trade secrets. It asks the court to shutter Facebook and give control of the company and its assets to ConnectU's founders.
Facebook has responded by asking a judge to dismiss the lawsuit. A hearing is scheduled today in U.S. District Court in Boston.
