Zuckerberg again accused of stealing ideas by Winklevoss Twins

Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg again accused of stealing the idea of a social network. Brothers Tyler, Cameron Winklevoss filed new lawsuit against Zuckerberg in U.S. District Court of California.

The Daily Mail. Writes

The twins who have accused Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg of stealing the idea for the website from them have re-started their bitter legal battle against him. Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss – who both now have Facebook accounts – claim their $65million settlement is not enough because their former friend lied to them about the value of the company. The also claim that Zuckerberg is guilty of securities fraud and are demanding he pays them an unspecified amount of extra cash. Facebook has rebuffed their claims and says in legal papers that the 29-year-old twins, famously labelled the ‘Winklevii’ in the film ‘The Social Network’, ‘suffered a bout of settlers’ remorse’ after the original deal. The prospect of the acrimonious row spilling out in public again would be acutely embarrassing for Zuckerberg and Facebook.

Aaron Sorkin, sharpen your pencil. Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, the crew-rowing, patrician twins who sued Mark Zuckerberg in 2004 for allegedly stalling their Harvard dating site in order to get his own social network—The Facebook—off the ground, are at it again. Though they received a settlement for $65 million in 2008, the Winklevii now say they should have gotten more money—so they’re suing Zuckerberg for a second time.

Interestingly enough, the second suit was filed long before The Social Network made the original Zuckerberg/Winklevoss story famous. Documents leaked to Radar Online show that the twins struck again this summer, after alleging that they had been the victims of securities fraud. Facebook is calling their new suit totally without merit:
