Submission + - SPAM: Facebook sued over use of Like button

clickclickdrone writes: Facebook is facing legal action over its use of the "like" button and other features of the social network.

Rembrandt Social Media said Facebook's success was based, in part, on using two of Mr Van Der Meer's patents without permission.
