Bidder's Edge Barred from Surfing eBay
from the stupid-legal-decisions dept
In what seems like a very weird decision, Bidder’s Edge has been banned from using an automated system to go through eBay’s site on the grounds that this might slow eBay down for everyone else. Wait a second… that would be true of anyone going to the site. I understand to some extent what the judge is trying to say, but I’m not sure that it makes any sense legally. The judge also makes the point that because Bidder’s Edge is using some of eBay’s property, others won’t be able to use it.
