You had asked some questions about an article that I had sent to you. So I wanted to respond and hopefully answer them so that you have a better understanding.
The first question you asked was what did Bidder’s Edge do that was different than Ebay’s normal customers. Bidder’s Edge used a automated process to search for items and used proxy servers that was not directly linked to Bidder’s Edge. (linking) Then you asked why it mattered to Ebay. It mattered to Ebay because Bidder’s Edge was stealing Ebay’s business and because Bidder’s Edge search engines made the searches more difficult for Ebay.
The next question you asked was what is the definition of traditional trespass to personal property. That definition is when someone knowingly and purposely violates the right of a person from doing and enjoying their personal property. This definition comes from the definition of trespass which means to commit an unlawful injury to the person, property, or rights of another, with actual or implied force or violence, especially to enter onto another’s land wrongfully. (thefreedictionary.com)
The last question you asked was does the definition of trespass to personal property in your text differ from the california definition of trespass to computer services and how. Yes, the definitions are different. The California definition of trespass states that “Under California law, to prevail in a suit for trespass based on accessing a computer system, the injured party must show the computer defendant intentionally and without authorization interfered with the plaintiff's possessory interest in the system, and the defendant's unauthorized use approximately resulted in damage to plaintiff.” (linking)
Anyways I hope this helped and good luck with your website!
