In Defense of Mashups: Bootstrapping or Stealing?

HousingMaps.com, the prototypical mashup, shows that awesome things can happen when data is freely used to create something bigger than the sum of its parts. Many business have tried bootstrapping by "borrowing" other companies' data, most notably craigslist. When does borrowing become stealing? Should larger companies be allowed to hold their users' data hostage? Or do startups need to get over themselves and stop using incumbents' hard-earned data against them? A panel of mashup veterans will discuss their thoughts on the matter.
