An anonymous reader writes "Last week, Facebook said it found the original 'authentic contract' between Mark Zuckerberg and Paul Ceglia, a man who claims he owns half of the company according to a 2003 contract. Now, Ceglia says the original 'authentic contract' Facebook claims to have found is really just a Photoshopped image the company planted on his computer."

    I hate to say this, but facebook's already won this battle. They probably cheated but unless someone can prove it this guy needs to shut up.

    Ceglia should have kept a watchful eye and documented the shit out of everything.

    What's more, this lawsuit is ages old and he could have nipped this situation in the bud a long ass time ago.

    If someone rips you off, you take care of it promptly. You don't just sit on your ass and let damages accrue.

    I would dismiss his case with prejudice on grounds of either laches or statute of limitations or both. Besides, he already made a binding settlement in the form of what proved to be very lucrative stock options.

    Unless he can show that Facebook somehow committed fraud *in that settlement* he has no standing to sue.

    I'm all for fighting the good fight but once you've waved the white flag the game is over.

    it's what all big corporations do. Nobody gets rich off of hard work and diligence like they preach to you. you either inherit money or steal it.

    Uh.. okay. And all gross generalisations are true, clearly.

    The business I work for has worked its way up from the ground, with products we designed, built and hire out with operating crew. All through hard work and diligence. We're not exactly a "big corporation" yet, but we're currently looking at selling off our sales division for several million, and ploughing that money back into more R&D.

    There are a lot of rich, scummy people out there sure, but you don't need to be scum to get rich..

You've been Berkeley'ed!
