Facebook Under Fire

Twins who accused Mark Zuckerberg of stealing idea for Facebook launch ANOTHER lawsuit against him

Angry: Cameron, left, and Tyler Winklevoss leave a Boston court in 2007 during their first suit against Mark Zuckerberg. After settling for $65million they have now launched a second suit
The twins who have accused Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg of stealing the idea for the world-conquering 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.

Under fire: The twins accuse Mark Zuckerberg, above, of stealing the idea for Facebook from them in 2003
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. (read more here)
