jigger: All2morrowsparTs: jigger: cgraves67: You're not paying them for the spot. You're paying for them to get out of it.Exactly. And that's why the law doesn't apply and the C&D letter is without merit.The law is about profiting off public land.No one is buying selling or leasing property except for the city. The app users are coordinating their parking together. The time at which you leave a parking space is not public property.
Magorn: I love how people think that someohow just so long as they phrase something properly the illegal suddenly becomes legal.
Magorn: jigger: Russ1642: some clever word useIn other words, law.No, Law the way people that don;t actually know or understand the law imagine it to be....big difference, ends up with a lot of people in jail because they think they can ignore a court orderi f the judge happens to have a gold fringe on the flag flying in his courtroom since that somehow makes it an Admiralty court without jurisdiction on dry land
fozziewazzi: Assuming these are parallel parking spots, I get the app, monitor the auctions, and position my car immediately behind the auctioneer and wait for him to pull out. Thank you for the free spot.
LeroyBourne: It's really a good idea, they just want their cut.
NorCalLos: I didn't RTFA; but it seems to me that what you're selling is exclusive information about when a particular spot will be vacant. Seems legit to me.
Warlordtrooper: Making money is only for the rich. The little guy has no right to try and make money! That's what this all comes down too. Some guy found a way to make a bit of money and the wealthy "job creators" don't like it
Dafatone: So, if someone "buys" a parking spot using this app, what's to stop some other driver from muscling in there anyway?
