Craigslist asks Mashery to drop support for 3Taps

Craigslist has taken the battle to protect its data much further. First it was against PadMapper, who placed Craigslist' rental ads on the map. They then sent a cease-and-desist letter to 3Taps that provided the API which exposed Craigslist data to PadMapper. Mashery, who provide the API platform for 3Taps have now been asked to drop support for 3Taps in their platform. Mashery has complied with the request as of now.
