Everyone knows the name Mark Zuckerberg as the person who founded the social networking site Facebook. Facebook and the real Zuckerberg are suing and being sued by another man who has changed his name to Mark Zuckerberg. The suit isn't over the name change, but over a company the new Zuckerberg started to help game the Like system that Facebook uses.

The new Zuckerberg was originally called Rotem Guez before he had his name legally changed this month. According to Facebook the new Zuckerberg and his company that sold "likes" on Facebook to companies wanting to get more. The business at the source of the suit is called Like Store.

The new Zuckerberg is in turn suing Facebook alleging that the company had no business shutting down the profile he had on Facebook for the Like Store. I don’t see this going well for the new Zuckerburg in court.
