Investigation launched into eBay dispute
Thursday 15 September 2011
US prosecutors have launched a criminal investigation into whether eBay employees misappropriated confidential information from classified ad service Craigslist, according to a grand jury subpoena.
The two companies have been feuding for years in civil court over allegations that online giant eBay used its Craigslist board seat to glean confidential information about the classified ad business as eBay prepared to launch a rival service.
The subpoena seeks an array of information and documents, including those pertaining to eBay's chairman Pierre Omidyar.
