Everyone can quickly get a sense of what this lawsuit is all about when Bill says "The defendant thumbed its multi-billion dollar nose at the law and plaintiff". Thats right, this is about money, Bill wants it and Facebook has it. He then goes on to blame FB for allowing his haters to spread their hate of him and then finishes it off with the usual sob story of how FB has cost him his marriage, his kids, his job, and even his home.
But lets not forget what the real truth was. Bill Windsor had 50,000 "likes" at one time (or close to it) on his public page but as we looked in to those profiles, the overwhelming majority of those likes were from fake profiles. Remember this story for instance http://joeyisalittlekid.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-big-game-by-funday.html
So Windsor defrauded Facebook with these likes in the first place and once we exposed his lie he hid all the likes. This was way before facebook suspended his account. I'm sure the logical question any judge would ask is how could someone go from 50,000 followers to just 100 by simply losing a facebook page? The answer of course is there never was 50,000 real followers, only a Windsor illusion. But don't let facts or even his fraud get in the way of making up a good story and trying to attack Facebook and their mulit-billion dollar company.
Since Bill has made himself a public figure and since he has taken the first shot at Facebook, this gives the Facebook legal team an easy target to make an example out of. People need to know that there are consequences for artificially inflating the number of followers you have for financial and political purposes. Bill Winsor is loaded and has plenty of money to cover FB's legal fees and damages, just ask Maid of the Mist how hard it is for him to cut a big settlement check when he has too.
As Bill Windsor claims in this lawsuit:
. The DEFENDANT’s conduct as
I think he is making a great point...just in reverse. He used, for free, FB's page to go out and lure people in to signing up with his fake movie he would never produce and then solidified it by artificially inflating his "likes" on his FB page to deceive people in to thinking he had a big following. The usual slap on the wrist just won't do here. Facebook needs to show everyone what happens when you defraud them and users nationwide like Bill did
