Now PayPal bans Wikileaks!


Amazon recently kicked WikiLeaks off of its servers; terminated the DNS of the whistleblowers organization‘s domain; and now PayPal has suspended the account that Wikileaks has used to receive donations!

PayPal Inc., the payment processor owned by EBay Inc., said in a statement on its blog:

PayPal has permanently restricted the account used by WikiLeaks due to a violation of the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, which states that our payment service cannot be used for any activities that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity. We have notified the account holder of this action.

Too much for the freedom of speech!
