+ - Paypal Declares War on Legal Published Erotica

Submitted by Nom du Keyboard
Nom du Keyboard (633989) writes "If you're doing business on the Internet you pretty much have to deal with Paypal for payments. Other alternatives are either more expensive, more limited, generally unsuitable, unavailable worldwide, or otherwise not able to meet the requirements for accepting payments over the Internet from pretty much everybody. And dealing with Paypal means dealing with their often arbitrary and capricious enforcement of vague and unseen policies. Now Paypal has suddenly declared war on legal published erotica and is demanding that an increasing number of individuals, as well as major eBook distributors, remove all titles that Paypal alone objects to, or lose their primary means of payment processing.. The Internet has just defeated SOPA and PIPA, but can it ever defeat the 900lb gorilla of Paypal? Note: It's unlikely that Paypal initiated this action completely on their own. They have always been more reactive than proactive, so where is this sudden new pressure to act coming from now? Enquiring Slashdotters would like to know."
