+ - Paypal Bans Usenet Providers Over Piracy Concerns->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In addition to the recent shutdown of Newzbin and NZBMatrice. In addition the the recent and massive amount of DMCA notices sent to usenet providers around the world. Paypal is now adding its own ingredient to the cake by blocking payments and freezing accounts of many usenet providers around the world.

From TorrentFreak : "Internet payment processing firm PayPal has decided to cut off services to several major Usenet providers and freeze the funds within their accounts. This new move by PayPal is seen as an extension of its aggressive anti-piracy policy which led to the withdrawal of services from several file-hosting websites earlier this year.""
