eBay and Customer Privacy

Last week, Israel’s Haaretz Daily published an article, Big Brother is watching you – and documenting, detailing statements made by eBay’s Director of Law Enforcement and Compliance, Joseph E. Sullivan, at the CyberCrime 2003 conference. Mr. Sullivan’s presentation, “eBay: Working with Law Enforcement,” was made behind closed-doors, but according to the article, was recorded. Sullivan allegedly stated in part “that eBay is willing to hand over everything it knows about visitors to its Web site that might be of interest to an investigator.”
