Facebook probably doesn't like lawsuit claiming it stole 'Like' button2/12/2013
A Dutch patent-holding company is pursuing Facebook for what is sure to be a handsome sum, alleging the social networking website ripped off its 'Like' button. Rembrandt Social Media maintains that a now-deceased programmer by the name of Joannes Jozef Everadus van Der Meer was behind the idea. They say van Der Meer came up with the device for his "Surfbook" back in 1998, five years before mindlessly posting pictures of modern cuisine and average-looking babies was cool. Surfbook has been described as a social diary that allowed people to share their lives with friends and family, complete with a button of approval. Sound familiar? [Source]
