Ebay just settled a $4.75 Million class action lawsuit. One of the things that is uniquely sad about the ebay situation is that a viable platform that actually was working well for small sellers (ebay) was PURPOSEFULLY and DELIBERATELY hijacked in a different direction by the CEO coming in charge in 2007 and that he made no bones about it and put into place systemic mechanisms (DSRs, PayPal holds, suspensions, restrictions) that are nto fairly and uniformly enforced. Is the new ebay profitible for stock holders (much of which consists of the top brass themselves)? Absolutely. Is there something wrong, unfair, and unethical with the way JD has gone about all of this and the small sellers who have suffered in the past 6 years? Absolutely. Have lines been crossed in terms of legality? I think the various lawsuits (including the $4.75 million class action suit settled recently) attest to that. Is this a media event? It could be and should be if the right investigative reporters were paying attention and doing their homework. But there are a number of factors that seem to have thus far prevented this.

What is so very sad about all of rhis ,is that for many people,eBay may have left such a bad taste in their mouth ,that it will be difficult for them to trust other online selling sites.At the same time,eBay and PayPal have unfairly monopolized online selling to such an extent,that many competing sites may not have the traffic that eBay does,so sellers get quickly discouraged when they move their items to other sires and do not QUICKLY experience the now meager sales that they had been relegated to at eBay as it purposefully got rid of them in Donahoe's attempt to transform the site to big box retailers.
