San Francisco has a reputation for being a hospitable host to its many tech startups. So it may have caught some by surprise when the city attorney issued a fiery cease-and-desist letter to one local startup, promising legal action if they do not cease operations in San Francisco. The target of the letter was MonkeyParking, the company behind the iOS app of the same name, which enables its users to charge other drivers for their parking spaces. San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera slammed MonkeyParking, which launched its app last month, of holding public parking spaces hostage for its own financial gain.
