Mark Zuckerberg CEO for Facebook has today been served a cease and desist order issued on behalf of the Egyptian government, claiming that he stole the idea for Facebook from the ancient Egyptians.
The current Egyptian government claims that hieroglyphs found on the walls of pyramids were in fact status updates of Pharaohs.
Historians have also noted that the Bayeux Tapestry was a beta version of the facility to share pictures online. It is also of historic importance in that the tapestry is the first record case of a user (Harold1) being tagged with an arrow, and poked at the same time.
More recently British Historians have pointed out that the Magna Carta was the first known set of documented security settings and user preferences, although subsequent updates are not actually written down they are just adopted and implemented carte blanche.
In fact, observers have pointed out that the root of the English Civil War, was the result of public unrest at yet another set of changes to the user interface that caused friction between those for (Cavaliers) and against (Roundheads).
User interface changes have also been know to cause further disaffection amongst users, most notably was the movement away from a hand stitched Tapestry interface to a more automated system that caused Wat Tyler to publicly condemn Facebook and move towards Twitter during the English Peasants' Revolt of 1381, as well as the Luddites during the 19th-century destroying mechanized Social networking tools which they felt were leaving them without work and changing their way of life.
A further legal case has been brought against Facebook by Maxcell and TDK who claim that they own the intellectual property rights to music and video sharing interfaces that they developed in the late 20th century with their magnetic audio and video tape solutions.
"We feel we have a strong case to answer, even stronger than those Winklevoss twins recent legal cases, and we are sure that we will get huge pay offs from Facebook over their plagiarism" said lawyers.
