What Does Facebook Think About Board Member Peter Thiel Secretly Funding Lawsuits Against a Publisher?

Kara Swisher, writing for Recode:

What does Facebook, which has been trying mightily to court the media industry to publish on the social networking site, think about Thiel’s actions, especially given he is a prominent director of the company?

And, more importantly, will it do anything about them?

The answer is, not surprisingly, a solid “No comment” from the company and a number of other board members. In fact, insiders are going out of their way to say that Facebook is not responsible for Thiel’s private actions and noting that it had nothing to do with the lawsuit.
