eBay official: Employees shared Craigslist data

GEORGETOWN, Del. - December 9, 2009

Brian Levey said Wednesday that information eBay gained as an investor in and board member of Craigslist was forwarded to eBay employees developing eBay's Kijiji domestic classifieds business.

Levey was testifying in eBay's lawsuit claiming that Craigslist improperly acted to dilute eBay's minority interest after a falling out in 2007. Craigslist says eBay used its stake in Craigslist to gain information for its own use.

In response to Levey's testimony, eBay senior vice president Alan Marks issued a statement saying eBay was allowed to compete against Craigslist in the classifieds market, including in the U.S.
