‘84% owner of Facebook’ ordered back to the US

Paul Ceglia, who has been waging a legal war against Mark Zuckerberg from Ireland, has been ordered to return back to the US by a New York Court.

Ceglia, who claims to be the rightful owner of an 84% stake in Facebook, has argued that he provided Zuckerberg with the seed money for a website called “The Face Book” or “The Page Book”.

Judge Leslie Foschio has now ordered Ceglia to return to the US to look for removable computer storage devices he claims are both no longer in his possession and integral to proving his case.

Alternatively, Foschio ordered Ceglia to provide a sworn declaration explaining how he lost or disposed of the storage devices.

Ceglia submitted a copy of a contract with Zuckerberg to the court hearing the case in Buffalo, New York, but lawyers for Zuckerberg and Facebook have denounced it as a fraud.

They said the document is a doctored version of another contract concerning work Zuckerberg did for Ceglia in 2003 on a website called StreetFax, which provided a photo database of traffic intersections for insurance adjusters.

Facebook lawyers have repeatedly denounced the suit by Ceglia as a “brazen and outrageous fraud” and described him as a “hustler.”

Facebook’s origins have been the subject of two recent books and a hit Hollywood movie, “The Social Network.”

A pair of Harvard University classmates, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, have been involved in a long-running dispute with Zuckerberg over Facebook, claiming he stole their idea for the social network.

Facebook, which launched in 2004, has become the world’s most popular social network with more than 800-million members. Zuckerberg’s net worth was recently estimated at US$6.9 billion by Forbes magazine. — AFP with additional reporting by Staff Reporter

    code was his invention, but ruled against him because jurors believed he had
    technically invalidated it.

    According to SAI sources, the
    following exchange is between a 19-year-old Mark Zuckerberg and a friend shortly
    after Mark launched The Facebook in his dorm room:
    Zuck: Yeah so if you ever
    need info about anyone at

    has been well-documented before in books like Accidental
    Billionaires and David Kirkpatrick’
    dave posted a copy of the
    emails to ben mezrick and to david kirkpatrick as for kirkpatrick your book is a
    joke . David tolled David Kirkpatrick’ to print the storey and was given
    Authority to do so;
    But David Kirkpatrick said no i can-not; YOU

    and new about paul ceglia and that zuckerberg sign the contract. ben book is not
    the full truth .David then made contact with Paul A Argentieri
    law and sent all the emails David then transfer the email to Merchant Law Group
    offices in Montreal,
    people talk about when they talk about Facebook is maybe a kid in college had an
    idea and all of a sudden it became this big business and the reality is it
    couldn’t be further from the truth…
    It all started when DAVID was logged
    in to the Harvard website,(2003) where I was listening in to the conversations
    of the Harvard students. One of these students was Mark Zuckerberg who was
    talking about Face Smash and he had just broken up with his girlfriend at the
    time, so I struck up a conversation with this Mark Zuckerberg. He was talking
    about creating a dating site. I thought this was a bit odd – a pie in the sky
    idea since he had just broken up with his girlfriend and he was slaging her off
    – calling her a bitch and a whore.dave talked to Mark about the idea, and
    suggested he call it Face Mash. He was intrigued with my suggestion and thought
    it was a good idea. Mark wanted to call it Face Smash, because he wanted to
    smash his ex in the face. I convinced him that Face Mash was a good idea and he
    agreed, but one week later he changed his mind and wanted to call it Face Smash.
    When I queried him about this he replied ‘f…. off you c…- I’m calling it Face
    Smash’. Two weeks after this conversation he came up with the name Mashable and
    when I asked him why he chose the word Mashable instead of Face Mash he said
    ‘f,…off you bastard, Face mash is not your idea’. So I re-posted the
    conversations we had two weeks earlier and he had to apologize and said he was
    going with Mashable. I took this as a sign that he wanted to throw me off the
    scent and take the site for himself. dave found the character of Mark Zuckerberg
    to be deceptive and dishonest and ended conversing with Mark Zuckerberg because
    of his dishonesty and lack of integrityDAVID DUSTIN + CHRIS THE ORIGIN
    After this dave started conversing
    with Dustin and Chris about an idea of mine called Facebook for an online
    service where students can post pictures and information on themselves and use
    it as a directory . and Eduardo
    Saverin was invited in to the
    idea facebookTHE PLATFORM
    So we needed a platform dave made
    contact with paul ceglia and was in discussion about a platform for my idea the
    facebookbut zuckerberg made contact to paul ceglia to steal the idea
    facebook ‘paul ceglia had no legal right to sell the the platform to mark
    zuckerberg but zuckerberg new what he was doing when he sign the
    contractAND ON APRIL 2003 ZUCKERBERG sign the contract with PAUL CEGLIA
    to steal the idea facebookCAMERON AND TAYLOR WINKLEVOSS
    dave found a site at Harvard called
    Harvard Connect (later, in 2004 changed to Harvard Connect To You) run by
    Cameron and Taylor Winklevoss, and dave explained everything about Facebook and
    the dealings with Zuckerberg, Dustin and Chris and how dave believed that
    Zuckerberg was in the process of stealing david idea, and dave asked if the
    Winklevosses were interested in running Facebook on the Harvard

    DAVID found out later on that the winklevoss contacted mark
    zuckerberg ; the WINKLEVOSS new that zuckerberg stole the idea facebook and fb
    was not there idea or zuck ; and zuckerberg sewed over the winklevoss. the
    winklevoss then contacted WAYNE CHANG and sold of the idea facebook my god how
    dumb can you get .all the winklevoss had to do was go hire a team of programmers
    or learn to program on their own . DIVYA NARENDRA contacted david and told david
    that the winklevoss contacted WAYNE CHANG and sold of the idea facebook with out
    telling david.

    david contacted WAYNE CHANG ‘ about this and WAYNE CHANG
    contacted the WINKLEVOSS and they went into denial about DAVID and the idea
    facebook; you see FACEBOOK was david idea ; so david sent copes of the EMAILS to
    the winklevoss had to
    ACKNOWLEDGE that the idea of facebook was david idea. WHEN DAVID SENT COPYS OF
    THE EMAILS to wayne chang.
    YOU got backstabbed.”!!? WAYNE CHANG.

    DAVID to over throw MARK ZUCERBERG from facebook ; The idea facebook was not
    zuckerberg IDEA; and the winklevoss did a double-cross and went with zuck . and
    zuckerberg fuck over the winklevvoss;
    And the winklevoss used the
    information to extort money out of zuckerberg by extortion . but the idea
    facebook was not the winklevoss idea and was not mark zuckerberg idea and you
    now it


    Dustin and Chris
    became co -founders of a stolen idea facebook ; they new the idea facebook was
    stolen ;and Saverin got duped out of facebook.
    but the question
    is why chris doesn’t even mention eduardo

    A lawsuit filed by
    Saverin against Facebook and
    Zuckerberg was settled out of court. Though terms of the settlement were sealed,
    the company affirmed Saverin’s title as co-founder of Facebook. Saverin signed a
    non-disclosure contract after the settlement.

    the truth; tell the TRUTH EDUARDO SAVERIN

    I take it this means Ceglia did not “flee” the USA as fabricated by the mainstream media to discredit him. After all a man who “Flees” a country doesn’t return immediately when asked . I sense Ceglia left for Ireland for a break away as any normal person does at least once a year. Why has the mainstream collaborated with Facebook to deny the facts to the public? first you fabricate a story that he “fed” to make it look like he was a liar and “fled” for that fact which has now being rendered untrue due to the small fact he is back in USA, and then you refuse to broadcast his evidence in truth while ramping up Facebook’s evidence to make them look like the victims, Why don’t you broadcast the analysis by Jerry Grant a computer forensics expert who says Ceglia’s contract and emails are authentic, here is a link to his analysis maybe you will read and broadcast them since your job is to tell the truth ..link..http://bolandlegal.com/site/ceglia-emails-to-zuckerberg-are-authentic-and-they-are-blockbusters
