According to ComputerWorld.com, Facebook filed suit on October 15th today against Faceporn.com, alleging the site essentially copied Facebook to build an adult social networking platform
“Until recently, Faceporn billed itself as “the number one socializing porn and sex network,” offering a range of pornographic content.
However it now says it’s offline for a redesign. “We’re currently working to launch a completely new version of the site, and it will be the best porn site the world has ever seen,” Faceporn says on its front page.”
According to court filings, Facebook alleges that Faceporn “blatantly copied the Facebook logo, site and Wall trademark.”
Screen shots filed with the lawsuit show some Facebook-like elements, including Wall postings and a similar blue-and-white color scheme. Instead of poking, Faceporn users can apparently “send a flirt,” according to the screen shots.
Facebook asks the court to order Faceporn to hand over its Web domain and all revenue to Facebook.
FuckBook.com however is alive and well as of publication
