To get Winklevied: When someone who was only tangentially involved in your startup sues you for stock after you’re successful.
Your former roommate’s brother wants 25% of the company because he helped design the original graphic? Congrats, you just got Winklevied. (Even in Silicon Valley, victory has a thousand fathers.)
Update: a source tells us that to get Winklevied can actually mean you were the victim–your evil co-founder stole the company from you. Thoughts? We thought Winklevied only carried sore-loser connotations, but correct us if we’re wrong.
