Two Degrees Separation from Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake was featured in recent movies about Facebook (i.e., Oscar nominated The Social Network) and a movie about teachers who may use Teachbook (i.e., Bad Teacher with former girlfriend Cameron Diaz). Ironically, he is therefore somewhat connected to both parties in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Illinois (closer than the six degrees of Kevin Bacon). Facebook, Inc. initially sued Teachbook.Com LLC in California, alleging various claims including federal trademark infringement, dilution, false designation of origin and others. The case was dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction so it was refilled in Illinois.

Acting is not the only connection Justin Timberlake has to social networking. He and other investors recently bought the second leading social network site MySpace. It is rumored that they plan on revamping the site to emphasize music.
