eBay started the fight but Craig is not taking it lightly and punches back with a lawsuit.
When this is all over, I will start using eBay and Craigslist again. They both fight like pu**ies.
A few weeks back eBay brought a lawsuit against Craigslist, of which it owns an arguably sizable stake. We later learned that the reasons for eBay’s lawsuit was due to Craigslist’s steps to dilute eBay’s shares in the online classifieds company.
Now, Craigslist has responded with a filed complaint of its own, which has been filed in California. According to Craigslist’s blog, Craigslist is charging eBay with “with unlawful and unfair competition, misappropriation of proprietary information, deceptive passing-off, business interference, false advertising, phishing attacks, free-riding, trademark infringement, trademark dilution, and breaches of fiduciary duty.”
This is an embarrasement to their image, what a bunch of hoaxes! Seriously, we need less politics and more real work in this Web2.0 world, especially with US economy going down. Can we stop these cat fights pleeez?
Better yet, I’d like to see the CEOs of each company battle it out with real boxing gloves.
