Facebook seeks dismissal of copyright suitpdf

ConnectU’s complaint “contains a litany of unrelated facts and legal theories that fail to identify what role the individual defendants have played in any wrongdoing or violation of ConnectU’s rights,” Facebook stated.

[…] Closely held ConnectU, based in Cambridge, and its founder, Cameron Winklevoss, sued in March. They accuse Facebook, which is based in Palo Alto, Calif., of copyright infringement, breach of contract, fraud, and theft of trade secrets.

It’s the latest development in a dispute that began in 2004, when ConnectU first sued amid Facebook’s growing popularity.
