The owners of a rival social networking Web site [ConnectU] are trying to shut down Facebook.com, charging in a federal lawsuit that Facebook's founder stole their ideas while they were students at Harvard.

Mr Zuckerburg should have gone open source.

I have an idea about a mansion, overlooking a lake and surrounded by mountains, on an as of yet undiscovered planet. If we find a planet and it has such a place, it's now mine?!

Stealing some of the exact code though, brutal if its true.
