    Zuckerberg Just Can’t Stop Losing – Meta Smacked Down in Another Massive Lawsuit

    Published on

    Since the tech billionaire Mark Zuckerberg changed Facebook’s name to Meta, it appears that the corporation has encountered metastasizing problems.

    A jury in Austin, Texas, ruled on Thursday that Meta infringed upon the intellectual property rights of an app firm named Voxer, according to Business Insider, which obtained a court document describing the judgment.

    Voxer went online in 2011; Facebook Live, which Voxer says leveraged parts of its patented technologies, went live in August 2015. According to The Register, Voxer sued Facebook in 2020 and then initiated a second legal action against the digital giant in the United Kingdom the following year.

    “Voxer said in its initial 2020 complaint that its founder, an army veteran named Tom Katis, began developing communications tech in 2006 after witnessing shortcomings in walkie-talkie technology while serving in Afghanistan,” Business Insider said.

    The business formerly known as Facebook was forced to pay $174.5 million to Voxer for infringing on Voxer’s patents.

    Zuckerberg has already faced serious claims and severe consequences. In 2009, Facebook paid up to $65 million in cash and shares to settle a lawsuit alleging that Zuckerberg stole the concept for Facebook from three of his Harvard classmates who were associated with the firm ConnectU.

    “Its owners alleged that Zuckerberg, who helped set up Facebook, stole the idea, technology, design and business plan while they were students at Harvard,” the Guardian reported.

    However, Meta’s legal problems are not the sole cause of social media’s negative reputation.

    In December 2021, a Washington Post-Schar School survey revealed that 72 percent of Americans have little to no faith in Facebook’s handling of private, personal data.

    10 percent of respondents asked said Facebook had a beneficial impact on society, while 56 percent believed it had a bad impact.

    Since then, Meta has undergone significant setbacks that may be causing or contributing to the decline in these figures.

    Facebook reported a decrease in user numbers for the first time ever in February. Consequently, Zuckerberg lost an estimated $29 billion in stock value.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    On July 1, Reuters reported that Zuckerberg had announced to Meta workers that he expected a serious downturn in business. He anticipated layoffs.

    In August, Zuckerberg admitted that during the 2020 election the FBI delivered a warning about disinformation and that Meta had used that as an excuse to suppress information on Facebook about the Hunter Biden laptop. Republican senators have demanded to see the FBI communications. CONTINUE READING…
