davekleiman writes with news that former eBay chief exec Meg Whitman took the stand today to kick off the battle that has been brewing between Craigslist and eBay. The waters are further clouded by Whitman’s upcoming bid for governor of California. “eBay wants to shed light on the ‘coercive plan’ that it has said Newmark hatched with Craigslist Chief Executive Jim Buckmaster to dilute eBay’s ownership stake, ultimately stripping eBay of its seat on the Craigslist board. Craigslist has hit back that eBay used its board seat to glean information to launch its own classified site, Kijiji. Craigslist also claims that eBay used deceptive tactics to direct traffic away from its site.”
