Facebook Founder worked on and dispute over 50% OF FACEBOOK! StreetFax.com

Seller's Notes

I have for sale today the domain name StreetFax.com, Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg was hired and worked on this site while he went to school at Harvard! Also, it is believed that the StreetFax.com code helped power Facebook’s original search features.

The domain is in the middle of a massive legal fight over ownership to 50% of Facebook, that’s $35 Billion dollars at stake!!

This is a piece of Internet history - history of a website, brand and possibly the largest court dispute in history!

This website has been featured in countless Global News and TV reports about the current lawsuit Zuckerburg Vs. Ceglia.

One of the details Facebook, Zuckerburg and Ceglia agree on:

“Both sides agree that Ceglia, 37, hired Zuckerberg, then a freshman at Harvard University, to work on Ceglia's StreetFax.com project in April 2003.”

3 Days ago :

“Ceglia passes lie detector and calls on Zuckerburg to take lie detector too”

StreetFax.com traffic is currently being directed to a Live Twitter Streaming Website.

Several inquiries and offers have been received - I thought it would be best to list it for auction.

This will be a tough sell,,because the domain is being litigated over the rights to the domain could be forfeited, though I wish you luck, I've followed this for a while. Not many people I know would touch this with a 10 foot pole.

@coloniehighway: There is no litigation over rights to this domain – the dispute is about ownership of Facebook. Why is it that so many people think that every domain even remotely related to facebook is somehow going to be taken by force? People were saying the same about the FaceMash.com but everything indicates the winner still owns it. While domains are not really my thing either, its a personal call and has nothing to do with the litigation ...

Well said, Pixellar. Nobody is going to take this domain away from anyone, even though it is a corner stone of the litigation the domain itself is not involved directly. There are no existing copyrights or trademarks either. This is a piece of web history.

The wires are picking this up and it looks like something needs to be addressed:
http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20110628005762/en/Zuckerbergs-Pre-Facebook-Project-StreetFax.com-Auction-Flippa-Website
In the Flippa listing, the seller of the domain makes further claims:

“Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg was hired and worked on this site while he went to school at Harvard. Also, it is believed that the StreetFax.com code helped power Facebook’s original search features.”
It’s not immediately clear where this second statement comes from and Flippa CEO Dave Slutzkin declined to stand behind it. “We have no specific information about the seller’s claims and we always advise buyers to do their own extensive due diligence."
OK I WILL RESPOND TO THIS IS A MOMENT...

BEASTIEBOY1 RESPONDS:
.. it is believed that the StreetFax.com code helped power Facebook’s original search features.
This is mentioned in an email from July 30th 2003 where Zuckerburg asks Ceglia if he can use StreetFax code to help the search functionality on Facebook.
JULY 30TH 2003

Zuckerburg email to Ceglia
..." I'VE BEEN TWEAKING THE SEARCH ENGINE TODAY (STREETFAX.COM) AND I AM PLEASED WITH ITS RESULTS. I'D LIKE TO USE IT FOR THE HARVARD SITE (FACEBOOK) , I THINK IT WILL REALLY HELP PEOPLE FIND EACH OTHER, EVEN IF THEY SPELL NAMES INCORRECTLY. WOULD IT BE AGREEABLE WITH YOU IF I ADAPT THE SOURCE CODE? THANKS! "
