NMA News Lampoons the Latest Ceglia v. Facebook Events

The folks at NMA (Next Media Animation) News have done it again, with another animated parody using their normal animation style. Their latest subject is the set of new developments in the Paul Ceglia and Facebook / Mark Zuckerberg dust-up.

Ceglia sued Zuckerberg in July of 2010. He claimed that in 2003, Zuckerberg had agreed to give him a 50 percent ownership in the project that became Facebook [Ceglia and the Winklevoss twins should talk; this may end up being "The Social Network 2"]. Ceglia also said that due to a provision in the deal, Ceglia "would acquire an additional 1 percent interest in the business, per day, until the website was completed." The suit said that by February 4, 2004, Ceglia's stake in Facebook totaled 84 percent.

While there was much skepticism over Ceglia's claims, particularly since he waiting so long to file, as well as the fact that he was a convicted felon, Ceglia has produced more than a dozen emails purportedly between himself and Mark Zuckerberg, ranging from July 2003 to July 2004, the year in which Facebook was founded.

The NMA News video lampoons the events, as NMA News videos typically do (they've spoofed Antennagate, Wikileaks, in-app iOS purchases before).

The emails are represented by seagulls in the video, perhaps because of the nautical theme at the beginning of it. What the animated version Zuckerberg does to them is a little over-the-top (but humorous), however. Watch it.
