Give tThem Nothing!

The founders of ConnectU said Monday they would seek U.S. Supreme Court review of a Ninth Circuit decision upholding their intellectual property settlement with Facebook Inc. founder Mark Zuckerberg, claiming the appellate court's ruling ignored federal securities law precedent.
