N.Y. man presses Facebook ownership claims

Juan Carlos Perez, IDG News Service | April 11, 2011
A New York man who claims he's entitled to a sizable stake in Facebook has amended his initial complaint, adjusting his ownership claim and providing additional documents, including e-mails he allegedly exchanged with Mark Zuckerberg.

Ceglia paid Zuckerberg $1,000 for his coding work for StreetFax.com, and another $1,000 as an investment on Zuckerberg's social-networking-site project. The contract Ceglia submitted to the court is allegedly signed by Zuckerberg and stipulates granting Ceglia 50% "in the software, programming language and business interests derived from the expansion of that service to a larger audience," in reference to what later became Facebook.

Facebook didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
