Valleywag: David Maestri: Creator of Facebook's most revenue-rich app accused of stealing trade secrets

"David Maestri created Facebook's most successful widget, Mob Wars, but now he's in legal trouble because he developed and launched the app while working for the company that would become the Social Gaming Network.
Sources tell VentureBeat that Maestri's Mob Wars, a role-playing game for the Facebook platform, earns its creator $1 million a month off its 2,505,698 monthly active users, mostly by selling in-game player upgrades for real world cash. On top of that income, research firm DeveloperAnalytics says Mob Wars could make another $22,000 month selling ads because its users load the app's pages around 60 times a day."
