An anonymous reader writes “The online payment provider PayPal has frozen the account of Courage to Resist, which in collaboration with the Bradley Manning Support Network is currently raising funds in support of US Army Pfc. Bradley Manning. ‘We’ve been in discussions with PayPal for weeks, and by their own admission there’s no legal obligation for them to close down our account,’ noted Loraine Reitman of the Bradley Manning Support Network (Support Network). ‘This was an internal policy decision by PayPal. … They said they would not unrestrict our account unless we authorized PayPal to withdraw funds from our organization’s checking account by default. While there may be no legal obligation to provide services, there is an ethical obligation. By shutting out legitimate nonprofit activity, PayPal shows itself to be morally bankrupt.’”
