EBAY SELLS SELLER INFO BACK TO THE SELLERS
Just in case you haven't noticed (and yes we predicted they would do this), since last winter, ebaY, who used to say they just did not have the room on their servers to provide 90 days of completed search to sellers and buyers, now has found the room on their servers. The snag is that you have to pay to access this information. Smart business, many would say, but TAG thinks this is taking information that belongs to
a seller, and using that info for profit, without permission.
If ebaY is just a venue, they are selling something they don't really own.
