According to CNN that on Monday, the U.S. appeals court ruled that the twins must accept the settlement for $65 million, and call it a day. Zuckerberg and Facebook have denied the theft allegations, and agreed to settle back in 2008. Since then, the Winklevoss twins tried to get a higher settlement by claiming that Facebook is guilty of securities fraud. If you saw the movie “The Social Network,” you would have seen that this was part of the movie. Check this out: The Winklevosses now want to back out. I don’t think they have a choice.

Chief Judge Alex Kozinski said, “At some point, litigation must come to an end. That point has now been reached. Also according to Judge Kozinski’s written ruling, ” The Winklevosses are not the first parties bested by a competitor who then seek to gain through litigation what they were unable to achieve in the marketplace.”

Did you wonder if Zuckerberg actually did steal the idea, even though the courts ruled in his favor?
