Since the company Paid, Inc. filed a patent infrigement complaint in U.S. District court in Massachusetts against ebay, why has this triggered the attention of the Justice Dept. towards ebay? As indicated in this comment from a discussion board: "I have read everything I can get my hands on about this action, and eBay should be worried. Paid Inc showed the patented technology to eBay years ago and offered to work out a licensing arrangement, but eBay refused, clearly hoping that Paid Inc would go out of business and they woud be able to buy the patents for very little. eBay and PayPal tried to patent a very similar process and were turned away by the US Patent Office, since Paid Inc already had the process covered. eBay is just the tip of the iceberg, evidently, as there are a number of large retailers infringing on the Paid Inc patents. This will cost eBay several BILLION dollars and could jeopardize the operation of the PayPal business. eBay's pattern of stealing technology and settling later with damaged parties has been noticed by the US Justice Dept, and could be proven as a criminal pattern of activities. Stay tuned for the eBay response to the complaint". How will the Justice Dept. proceed?

In my opinion based on experience they would undermine anyone they choose. We need to get our government back on track. eBay has spun out of control like a 2-year-old testing their parents with hands in a cookie jar. The total aggressions adds up to nothing less than theft, aiding and abetting. When they play a role in crime they hang one of their players out to dry while they adamantly deny they knew nothing about it and they didn't do anything. It is time to take this gorilla down and hold our government responsible for neglecting the people! Do you know how many of those players are currently doing time? Look it up.

Agreed, Missy. There's a grassroots social media backlash going on against eBay these days composed of former ebay sellers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/formerebaysel...

Ebay is operated by Communists who want to outlaw firearms, ivory, and a million other items. Try listing a childs cap gun on Ebay and see how fast it gets pulled unless the vintage cap gun is fitted with a plastic orange end!!! my opinion.

Who are the members of the Communist Party that run Ebay? Are they Russians or Chinese?

A mixture of Communists from dozens of foreign countries work at Ebay. North Korean Leader Kim Gong-Un works part time at Ebay to pay for his imported Swiss cheese supply. Red stars on Pasha Communist hats are worn everywhere in the dark evil offices at Ebay. The next item Ebay will ban, will be copies of the United States Constitution. My opinion.
