Social media giant Facebook has threatened to sue Mark Zuckerberg, but not the one you're probably thinking of.
Facebook is threatening to sue Israeli entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg after he recently legally changed his name from Rotem Guez for violating the Web site's terms and conditions.
Zuckerberg refused to disband his Like Store, a company that sells Facebook likes to companies, despite Facebook sending a cease and desist order in September. Facebook asked Zuckerberg to no longer even access Facebook's Web site, but he continues to utilize the social media platform.
If you ignore this letter and continue your current improper conduct, Facebook will take whatever measures it believes are necessary to enforce its rights, maintain the quality of its site, and protect its users' privacy and information, said a statement to Zuckerberg.
The man formerly known as Rotem Guez decided to legally change his name to Zuckerberg so that Facebook would face potential embarrassment for pursuing legal action against the name of the company's founder.
Facebook decided to sue me after I myself, filed a law suit against them, in Israel, he said in an email to The Huffington Post. I wanted that once they sue me, they'll face suing Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook accused me of selling ficticious (sic) Likes, which is not true, our Likes come from real users who want to receive our content, and instead of paying us with money, they pay us with Likes. The idea was, if only Mark Zuckerberg is allowed to sell likes, then for that matter, I'm Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook has not officially filed a lawsuit against Zuckerberg, but is likely weighing its options. Zuckerberg is still on Facebook, despite the company's requests to get off the network. He has even created a Facebook page entitled, I'm Mark Zuckerberg, and has openly questioned whether it will sue him.
