FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -

Facebook’s new “want” button is giving them something they might actually not want -- a lawsuit from a metro Detroit company.

Camelot Venture Group in Farmington Hills claims the new feature steals the service is developed on its website, WantButton.com.

The company wants Facebook to stop using the new feature and is asking for any money that has already been made from it.

Camelot first started using its website in 2010.

Facebook has not released a statement on the lawsuit.
