Dutch anti-Internet piracy group Brein has called on electronic payment companies such as PayPal and iDeal to cease processing payments to websites which facilitate illegal file-sharing.
“These providers are providing payment services to websites and if these websites are breaking the law, they should not provide these services,” spokesman Tim Kuik told Tweakers.net.
Brein also wants the payment companies to help it find out who the owners behind the pirate websites are.
