    Entrepreneur changes name to that of Facebook CEO so when the social networking site sues him for his online business, they will sue Mark Zuckerberg.



    Israeli entrepreneur Rotem Guez said he has legally changed his name to that of Facebook's CEO, a gimmick meant to persuade the social networking site to back down from what he says are threats to take legal action against him.

    He's telling Facebook: "If you want to sue me, you're going to have to sue Mark Zuckerberg." He said a lawyer for Facebook pressed him this week to close his online business Like Store, calling it illegal. Like Store promises to enhance companies' online reputations by offering Facebook users free content only accessible by clicking "like" on the companies' profiles.
    The Israeli acknowledged on Saturday his company violates Facebook's terms of use, but said many U.S. companies offer similar services.

    Where you think ? xD
    I bet he is doing this to get publicity and once he maybe wins, he might just change it back, it is a unusal tactic

    LOL, nice to see someone doing something to stand up to them... they have shut down several harmless sites in the past, and are just plain bullying smaller companies.

    I wouldn't change my name for the reason he did. It makes for an interesting news story but other than that I don't think there's much point.

    What is the point in doing anything in life? We all have different reasons for the things we do. I think this was a much more worthwhile thing to do then thousands of things other people do every day. Whats the big deal about changing your name? A name is nothing.
