Police may be able to access this information by subpoena. Stannard Friday, November 7, — Craigslist, the famed pioneer of free online classified advertising, announced Thursday that one type of advertising will soon no longer be free: those for erotic services.

Meanwhile, groups such as the EFF are watching the agreement to see how it works out, said Opsahl. Buckmaster said the company is trying to strike a balance, keeping the erotic services section — in part to keep such from appearing elsewhere on Craigslist — but trying to do so responsibly, protecting free speech and preventing exploitation.
