PayPal Blocked Usenet Services

PayPal Blocked Usenet Services

The payment company changed some of its regulations regarding file-sharing services, and now did the same to Usenet websites. In other words, PayPal denied the access of a number of Usenet portals to their accounts.

In an attempt to curb copyright violation, PayPal changed its regulations a few months ago in order to making it harder for file-sharing portals to survive. Today the company focused on 5 Usenet resellers: XSUsenet, EasyUsenet, Usenet4U, and a couple of others. These services can’t access their accounts any longer, and their funds are frozen for 6 months.

The decision in question might push the websites to bankruptcy for several reasons; first of all, Internet users who prefer paying through PayPal might want to seek alternatives, and secondly, the frozen funds are quite substantial.

One of the British file-hosting portals, Putlocker, also became a victim of such changes – its account was frozen a few months ago when the company refused to allow the portal to check the files uploaded by its members. The portal admitted that they basically wanted access to the backend in order to monitor all the files that were uploaded, as well as listing all files of users if they wanted, paying no attention to the privacy setting that the website’s users might have selected.
The service claims that it’s a complete invasion of privacy on PayPal’s part, because it’s none of their business what content Internet users store in their account. Putlocker has a solid abuse handling policy already, so it believes that none of the 3rd party companies can have any business snooping on its users.

In fact, it wasn’t the only one: MediaFire, one of the major cyberlocker portals, moved its business elsewhere after PayPal refused to reach an agreement which wouldn’t affect the privacy of the Internet users.

At the moment, there are some other file-hosting and Usenet services which continue accepting PayPal payments, but the experts believe that their numbers will grow in the nearest future.

frostycarver avatarThat's just brilliant...... we finally get some really great streaming sites for tv/movies like PUTLOCKER and Paypal has to ruin it. I find it funny how a company like paypal starts flexing its muscle the minute it gets clout. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE PEOPLE BOYCOTT THEM FOR TRYING TO VIOLATE PRIVACY LAWS! I hope some civil rights solicitors take that case on for PUTLOCKER and get them all their monies back. I think that entire situation with paypal keeping companies monies is scandalous. How would they like it if someone did that to them. PRATS!

CaptCosmo avatarPayPal is not the only service available and it is far from being the best. Used to be a site called IamPayPalTerrified that was filled with horror stories about them. I even sold o eBay for 6 months using the ID "IamPayPalTerrified" before they banned me. You would not believe the volume of truly sad stories people shared with me. Their points with me are so low that any other alternative has got to be better and I know there are many who agree!!

Jedimastersky avatarI have been using PayPal for years now. But I have to say I am unhappy the way PayPal now seem to think they are an all powerfull entity who wants to ingnore privacy policies of their business customers/clients.

frostycarver avatarAmerica is so bold, they think they are entitled to have whatever they want,from whomever they want...whenever they want it! Privacy laws exist for situations such as these.would love to see them hit with HUGE interest, fines and fees over this.Fair play to PUTLOCKER for standing up for OUR rights!

fadevenom avatarPaypal are bigger criminals than any file sharing website. The things they do to people and the money they take is just disgusting. Maybe instead of all this focus on file sharing the governments should be looking at companies like paypal.

scarecrow77 avatarGlad I deleted my paypal account before this happened. I would like to see the logic behind their attempt to see what people were uploading, etc., knowing that they would be screwing themselves out of business with a number of people.

No avatarPaypal/ebay is a trash company that rips off sellers in every way possible with outrageous fees, and constant buyer-scams. They need to be under the same rules that banks and/or credit card companies follow, and it needs to be easier to hold them accountable.
They also don't control counterfeiters, even the top rated sellers are lots of if not 100% fake merchandise, or stolen goods.

In the meantime, I hope they keep shooting themselves in the foot like this. God knows the moron sheep won't stop throwing away 15% of their money with every ebay purchase/sale, so I'll have to hope ebay/paypal kills itself off another way.

skulljockey avatarPaypal is very intrusive to those of us who don't know better. I admit I was one of those people that didn't know better at the time. A few years ago I was buying something on-line and this paypal popped up with all these security promises. So I used paypal to help me spend my money. If u use a credit card you are afforded more security than paypsl could ever dream of, all u have to do is report it to ur CC company as a disputed charge and they put the money in question back in ur account straight away. The money is put back in ur account during their investigation into the matter. 9 out of 10 times that the last you hear of it and once I had to fill out a formal dispute and then that was the end of it case closed
