Open Memo to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg on his $25B Mistake from Legal Vendor CEO

Open Memo to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg on his $25B Mistake from Legal Vendor CEOFor all the time we spend talking about, playing with, and obsessing over new technology for new technology’s sake (think new Best Buy commercial), it is truly refreshing to see a technology innovation ’cause and effect’ real world case study. Well, we just got off the phone with Zafar Khan, an old legal industry friend and CEO of registered email technology RPost. Zafar told us about an Open Memo he recently wrote to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, in response to a lawsuit filed by Paul Ceglia where he claims to have emails from 2004 which show Mark Zuckerberg allotted him 50% of Facebook equity.Zafar, who’s company’s core principle is built around RPost’s Registered Email service that protects the sender with a legal electronic messaging capability, is well versed in the relevant authentication/ admissibility legal questions and as such has assisted in establishing international standards for what constitutes a legally valid and court admissible record of who said what to whom, by email and at what point in time. The memo provides a very easy to understand (not typical case law) list of common email misconceptions especially as it relates to their proof of ‘who said what to whom by email’ and illustrates why Ceglia’s case might not be as strong as once hoped … all because certain email certification and encryption technologies now readily available to attorneys where not used in the now infamous 2004 email streams between Paul Ceglia and Mark Zuckerberg.

The entire memo can be read here. Also, we will let you know if Zafar hears back from Zuckerberg who was hand delivered the memo today.
