As I was settling into my role as eBay’s first Legislative Counsel, my office received an urgent call from CEO Meg Whitman requesting help with the India Situation, a.k.a. “Operation Save Avi!”

It was 2004 and Avnish Bajaj, American citizen and Harvard Business school graduate, was head of eBay subsidiary Bazee.com. Up for auction, without his knowledge, was a link to a video clip of New Delhi students having oral sex. The seller, a different student, listed the item for a little under $3. The clip was never sold and was never shown. Avi had nothing to do with the video and never even viewed it.
