Craigslist Sues Instamotor for Scraping, Reposting Car Ads

Craigslist has filed a federal lawsuit against Instamotor, alleging that it scraped Craigslist for car ads and re-appropriated them as its own. Craigslist, also of San Francisco, also accuses Instamotor of harvesting Craigslist users' contact information and harassing those users with unsolicited text and email messages advertising Instamotor services. In documents filed with the court, Craigslist cited multiple instances in which users wrote to complain that their vehicle and contact information were being posted without their consent on Instamotor. Such scraping and spamming activity, Craigslist contends, is expressly forbidden under the website's terms of use and harms Craigslist reputation with its customers. Craigslist is seeking unspecified damages from Instamotor and a court-ordered injunction to keep Instamotor from accessing Craigslist for commercial purposes.
