    The seller (of the info) has a right to occupy the spot. He also has a right to vacate the spot when he chooses to vacate it. As far as the buyer having exclusive rights to it, I don't think anyone is making that claim; a "buyer" can only enforce his claim to the same extent as any other driver, with the general operating principle in such matters being "The early bird gets the worm." The early bird in this case gets the worm because he knew something the other drivers didn't.

    Think about it.
    Yeah, I honestly believe that. Anyone who thinks he's buying an exclusive right to occupy a particular public parking spot is an idiot. If he really had that, then he wouldn't have to worry about the other guy leaving, would he now? Think about it.

    He doesn't have a right to choose who gets the spot. Actually, you as a citizen don't have a right to choose who gets to use any public property. This has been explained to you in about 10 different ways.

    I'd say he doesn't have a right to enforce who gets the spot. He does have a right to tell particular people when he's vacating a space.

    Yeah, telling someone about a vacant spot is the same as posting a sign on public property. I get it.

    You're so out of your league here it's almost laughable. According to you: information is what is being sold. The customer purchases it on the premise that the spot is available. In other words: For the transaction to be considered non fraudulent, the spot needs available when the customer gets there. If the customer gets there and the spot is taken by someone else, the salesperson has committed fraud as the information being sold does not match up to the information that the customer purchased. How old are you? It doesn't sound as if you deal with business a lot.

    And no, you don't have a right to occupy a spot until a customer gets there to complete it. Parking works this way: First come, first served.

    If you'd read the thread, then you'd know that the buyer doesn't pay until he gets possession of the spot. The seller is NOT guaranteeing that the buyer will actually receive it.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
