Online classifieds leader Craigslist.com filed a countersuit on Tuesday against business rival eBay, alleging eBay used its minority stake in Craigslist to steal its corporate trade secrets.

In a lawsuit filed in California Superior Court in San Francisco, Craigslist challenged allegations in an eBay suit filed in Delaware state court in April that accused Craigslist of discriminating against eBay as a shareholder.

You are right. But I don't like ebay. All they care about is finding way to get your money. I'm totally with CraigsList and breaking away from ebay is a good thing for them.

King-Fisher, I don't think they willingly let eBay buy into them... it was sold to eBay by a minority shareholder and they couldn't prevent him selling if I remember this correctly (I did read something many many months ago).
