Facebook has finally sued Studivz. People from the german online industry have been joking about the similarity for years.

There were even articles in business 2.0 who described the business model of copying successful us platform and publish them in germany in the hopes Facebook would not see it.

And it worked. For a long time Facebook did not even enter the german market. I have been waiting for this suit ever since Facebook came to germany. I wonder what took them so long.
