CAB initially complained that its members hadn’t been fully briefed; it then said it would have nothing to do with eBay’s further trials, saying that the system was too narrow an application and was basically ineffective. Sean Cunningham, president and CEO of the CAB, told NYT at the time:

What i notice that it was a controversial engagement from the beginning and it received not much support from the network industry(cable). It was suppose to be a mutual significant change for both the operators and ebay itself. If one doesn’t put one hand forward it hard to have a model like this be worked successfully.
