PayPal joins London police bid to financially starve "illegal" websites

nice. we need more responsibility like this.
PayPal has joined a music copyright association and the City of London police department's bid to financially starve websites deemed "illegal." When presented with sufficient evidence of unlicensed downloading from a site, the United Kingdom's PayPal branch "will require the retailer to submit proof of licensing for the music offered by the retailer," said the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry's latest press release.

I really believe 'they' (ISPs, now paypal, ect) are being proactive because they feel the inevitable legislation from the government coming down the pipe, if nothing changes.

They'd MUCH rather write the rules for this sort of thing than have it handed to them in the form of legislation/regulation.

Think of it as pre-emptive policy.
