A few weeks ago I predicted that Craigslist could sue Padmapper and 3taps for scraping/TOU violations:

Now Craigslist has filed suit in federal district court in California:

Excerpt from my earlier post:
Eric's blog post today says that "using 3taps just makes it so it’s not a TOU issue." The problem is it doesn't. Craigslist's lawyers already thought of this, which is why the TOU also prohibits the "display" and "derivative use" of "any content posted on craigslist," which PadMapper is clearly doing... (Craigslist also may be able to make a separate copyright claim, which the TOU envisions, but it's not as straightforward.)...
