The Social Network has instigated a fresh round of ownership claims by former Harvard room-mates of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg concerning the social networking platform.
The highly acclaimed movie by Aaron Sorkin, which is loosely based on the life of the chief executive officer and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has once again brought his former room mates, who helped him to develop the Facebook platform, into the limelight, states the Financial Times.
According to the news, the twin brothers and former Olympics rowers who shared a room with Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard have once again raised their voices against the Facebook owner, accusing him of misleading them with terms and conditions of their previous settlement in 2008.
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss had previously filed a lawsuit against Zuckerberg which they settled for $65 million two years ago. However the twins have again accused him of depriving them of millions and millions of dollars.
“We’ve considered the Winklevoss dispute closed for years and we wish them well in their future endeavours,” stated Facebook in response to the fresh allegations made by the brothers during an appearance on Today Show on NBC.
