Facebook Sue'd, why the heck now ?

Sunday, July 15, 2007

"'The lawsuit, filed by brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra, accuses Zuckerberg, Facebook's 23-year-old C.E.O, of stealing the source code, design, and business plan for Facebook in 2003 when he briefly worked in the Harvard dorms as a programmer for their own fledgling social-networking site, now known as ConnectU. The plaintiffs have demanded that Facebook be shut down and that full control of the site — and its profits — be turned over to them.' I just wonder why they waited so long to sue? If he really stole their idea in 2003, why wait four years?"

My take why the heck did they take so much time ? Also this lawsuit is going to be withdrawn as facebook has already filed a countersuit against ConnectU for unfair business practises http://news.justia.com/cases/connectu-facebook/337138/. I am eagarly waiting what it means to Zuckerberg who has already hired the best lawyers from the Sillicon Valley for this case. However, This seems to me like a take over game or just an advertising stunt by ConnectU.
