Facebook Threatens Fluff Busting Purity Greasemonkey Script Developer

Posted Mar 25, 2010

Facebook made a threat to a Greasemonkey script developer recently.  Greasemonkey is a Firefox add-on where users can download and develop custom scripts that can change the design of a website.  The Greasemonkey script, called Fluff Busting Purity cleans up the Facebook live feed so that you do not see application notices. This means if someone does something on Farmville, you will not know.  The script was originally known as Facebook Purity, but Facebook sent them a trademark notice. [TechDirt]
