In a recent ruling, a federal judge said classifieds website Craigslist can invoke a controversial anti-hacking law to stop a startup known as 3Taps from accessing its website, technology blog GigaOM reported.

The ruling suggests 3Taps violated the law, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), when it disguised its IP address after Craigslist blocked the startup from accessing the site and issued a cease-and-desist letter to stop the startup from collecting Craigslist’s data and making it available to others, the blog said.
