“Craigslist returns fire in eBay suit”

13 May ’08

I can’t help but think that Craigslist’s salvo against eBay is an attempt to accomplish by litigation what it failed to accomplish by business planning and sensible precautions among co-founders when it first issued shares, and by negotiation with eBay when it acquired its interest. And while it may be a small point (or perhaps ultimately not so small), I also can’t help but think about this in the context of Craigslist’s well-known disdain for ‘professional’ management (something we saw on display when Jim Buckmaster was on stage for his great keynote at mesh07).
