Former eBay executives charged with cyber-stalking
Six former eBay executives and staff have been charged with cyber-stalking in a campaign against a couple who ran a newsletter critical of the company. EBay said it did not tolerate such behaviour and apologised to the couple. Prosecutors named several senior employees, including 45-year-old James Baugh, a former senior director of safety and security, and 48-year-old David Harville, the firm's former director of resiliency. He called the alleged stalking an attempt from "Pretty high up the chain" to "Weaponise the internet" to protect eBay's brand. In a statement eBay said it "Does not tolerate this kind of behaviour. EBay apologises to the affected individuals and is sorry that they were subjected to this".
