Yahoo Japan, eBay to team up in '08 - The Boston Globe

Pragmatic co-evolution...

Yahoo Japan Corp. and eBay Inc. agreed yesterday to team up in online auctions, planning services for next year that will make it easier for consumers to buy things over the Internet from the United States and Japan.

The move marks a return to Japan by eBay, which pulled out in 2002, never able to compete against the domination of Yahoo there.

Yahoo said by March, those in Japan will be able to bid for items on eBay through the Yahoo auction site in Japan. By the middle of next year, similarly, a site will be set up that will allow Americans to buy Yahoo Japan auction items through the eBay site.
