Former eBay Executive Sentenced to Prison for Cyberstalking Campaign

A former eBay Inc. executive at the center of a harassment campaign against two bloggers was sentenced in a Massachusetts federal court Thursday to four years and nine months in prison, authorities said.

The former executive, James Baugh, pleaded guilty in April to participating in a series of attacks on the bloggers, David and Ina Steiner. The Steiners ran a niche e-commerce blog that eBay executives perceived as critical of the company, according to court documents.
