Taxman Grabs eBay Records

If you earn your living on eBay, then the tax collector is interested in you.  In another case which raises privacy questions in the world of e-commerce, the Canada Revenue Agency sought and won a Federal Court order forcing eBay to disclose the names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of all its high-volume sellers, even though that data resides in servers located in the US.  eBay initially resisted the request on the basis that eBay Canada did not “own” or “possess” any such information in Canada.  The court decided that eBay Canada has access to the information and this was enough to permit the order for disclosure.
