ID and Password Sharing – Who Does it Really Hurt Anyway?
Kaboom!!! CoStar fires several large artillery rounds right through the real estate industry in its recent multi-defendant federal court case.
The defendants even had the temerity to call the CoStar help desk seeking technical help on several occasions.
[With respect to Gressett, CoStar specifically alleges that Gressett used CoStar’s database without authorization from at least April 14, 2004 to February 14, 2008. CoStar also maintains that on at least six occasions between January 2005 and October 2007, Gressett called CoStar in Maryland, representing himself as an employee of Alliance, in order to gain assistance or technical support from CoStar in order to access the database.]
