Who Owns Facebook?

It’s old news now that a gentleman named Paul Ceglia claims to own 84% of Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook web site.  Ceglia coughed up a contract that purports to pay Zuckerberg $1000 to write code for a project Ceglia called StreetFax and also to pay Zuckerberg $1000 towards the development of “The Face Book” in exchange for an ownership interest.

It’s the strangest contract.  Any thoughts on it’s origin?
