Snapchat hits the big time, gets slapped with Winklevoss-style lawsuit

Snapchat Restraining Order FiledImage Source: The New York Times

When Snapchat isn’t turning down multi-billion dollar offers from Facebook, it’s apparently dealing with some of the same issues that the world’s most popular social network dealt with in its fledgling years. Reuters reports that Snapchat “has filed for a temporary restraining order against Frank Reginald Brown,” a man who claims to have devised the concept of Snapchat in the first place. The company says that Brown leaked confidential testimony to the public in a separate suit, one in which he states that the company is refusing to acknowledge his contribution to the project. The videos that Brown leaked make a case for his side of the story, and Brown says that “he reserves the right to disclose the information to the public at any time.”
