In Familiar Problem for Mark Zuckerberg, Attorney at Law, Facebook Disables His Account

It’s not always easy being Mark Zuckerberg.

Especially if you’re Mark Zuckerberg the Indiana bankruptcy attorney, not Mark Zuckerberg the famous founder of Facebook. The not-so-well-known Zuckerberg has recently had his personal Facebook page taken down, perhaps because someone at the social networking site mistakenly thought he was trying to impersonate his well-known alter ego, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Having dealt with similar issues before, attorney Zuckerberg was prepared: He has a web page explaining who he is. His was, the lawyer notes, a relatively well-known name before the younger Mark Zuckerberg won fame and fortune.

“I have put a lot of energy into becoming an exceptional bankruptcy attorney and establishing my good name nationally,” explains Zuckerberg on his Web page. “If you had Googled Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, you would have found me. No one else. Mark S. Zuckerberg, bankruptcy attorney. If you had repeated the search two years later, you wouldn’t have found me at all. Now my name isn’t mine any more.”
