Of course it's about money. Why does anyone get sued?

http://failbook.com/T-P10-189U.pdf

They, (http://www.failbook.com/) - aka some guy in his basement, is getting sued because he completely ripped off the site (http://failbooking.com/) -(massive corproate meme machine) including all the trademarked stuff et all. (even their legal page that said to contact them). and had it hosted on his own site....

regardless of whether he made any money on advertising on the site he registered failbook.com for a few dollars for the year, (like we can all register domains). then he loaded it with stolen content that he used to increase the value of the domain name,
then he tried to sell the domain name for 57 thousand dollars.

It is rather ironic that the guy who owes failbook is getting sued for 'failing'. Seems rather fitting.

I agree. It's not like it's something subtle or a minor legal technicality. If you think you can pull that kind of stunt in this day and age and get away with it, this is the sort of reaction you'll get!
