The following is a verbatim segment from Mark Zuckerberg’s 2009 interview on the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). Starting at about :32…:
BBC: So who is going to own the facebook content? The person who puts it there, or you?
MZ: The person who’s putting the content on facebook always owns the information. And that’s why this is such an important thing, and why Facebook is such a special service that people feel a lot of ownership over. This is their information. They own it.
BBC: And you won’t sell it?
MZ: No, of course not.They want to share it with, um, with only a few people.
BBC: So, just to be clear, you’e not going to sell or share any of the information on Facebook.
MZ: What the terms say is just, we’re not going to share people’s information except for with the people that they’ve asked for it to be shared.
Well said, Mark. Right up there with “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky” and “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”.
And this guy attacks other people for not telling the truth? Wow.
