Facebook is suing this site, claiming the site to be a ‘Facebook Knockoff’.
If your business model entails some kind of global monopoly that allows you to decide how people can meet other people, your business is untenable.
Please stop using Facebook. If this lawsuit goes through it will set precedence that can be regurgitated to say “All graphical desktops are Windows knockoffs’, or even worse, ‘All blue jeans are Levis knockoffs’.
To Facebook: if you had any hopes of reaching a non English speaking European market, you would have done so. Don’t throw a legal hissy fit as a consequence of your own oversights. If ever you make watches, you are free to re-start your ‘knockoff’ hissy fit.
