Facebook Sued Over 'Like' Button By Dead Guy

I had no idea that dead people could sue anybody. eek! Beside, how do they know the dead guy even opposes Facebook's "like" button?

It is being sued by a patent-holding company acting on behalf of a dead Dutch programmer called Joannes Jozef Everardus van Der Meer. Rembrandt now owns patents for technologies Mr Van Der Meer used to build a fledgling social network, called Surfbook, before his death in 2004.
