Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, unintentionally revealed (in a photo he posted to his Facebook account) that he covers up the webcam and audio port on his laptop. He literally has a small piece of masking tape over the pea-sized camera lens and another one on the audio port where headphones plug in. The social media universe was quick to pick up on this, leading to all sorts of speculation and theory crafting about the possible implications.
Three weeks after the publication of my open memo to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg – first published by Business Insider on June 8, 2011 – plaintiff lawyers from law firms DLA Piper LLP and Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP dropped out of their lawsuit against Facebook, despite the awaiting percentage of a potential $25 billion bounty. This memo, with the subject, “Grounds for Early Dismissal of Ceglia’s Claims — Paul Ceglia’s $25 Billion Mistake,” was written by me to provide assistance to Zuckerberg in response to a recent lawsuit filed by Paul Ceglia where he claims to have emails from 2004 which show Mark Zuckerberg allotted him 50% of Facebook equity.
