Corporate Denial of Service: San Jose-based PayPal Closes WikiLeaks Account
After web host Amazon and domain name system (DNS) host Dyn Inc. terminated service to WikiLeaks.org earlier this week, San Jose-based PayPal announced late last night that it has "permanently restricted" WikiLeaks' account.

On Thursday, Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg called for a boycott of Amazon and an online petition asks Amazon to host WikiLeaks for free.

In a statement released on its blog, PayPal accused WikiLeaks of violating its acceptable use policy by "encourag[ing], promot[ing], facilitat[ing] or instruct[ing] others to engage in illegal activity."

WikiLeaks has struggled to stay online after initiating the slow release of over 250,000 leaked US diplomatic cables along with newspapers around the world known as Cablegate, and is now available on several mirrors such as wikileaks.indymedia.org.
