Facebook’s legal team goes after defunct Yale class project

2 10 2015

A school project created by two Yale undergraduates in 2011 has unexpectedly become a target of Facebook’s legal team. The social networking giant has demanded that the two developers, Bay Gross and Charlie Croom, abandon the website they created at whatsherface-book.com. The site featured a game that showed people pictures of their Facebook friends, then quizzed them on which pictures they could recognize.

“You should not sell, offer to sell, or transfer the domain name to a third party and should let the domain registration expire,” states the letter, signed by “Ethel” of Facebook’s legal department. “Please confirm in writing that you will agree to resolve this letter as requested.”
