C-RadaR - Unicorn and mc.fly talk with guests about the PayPal 14 case.

When the account of the Wau Holland Foundation was blocked by PayPal in December 2010 for having allegedly - as stated in PayPal’s letter to us - "encourage[d], promote[d], facilitate[d] or instruct[ed] others to engage in illegal activity" by donating to WikiLeaks, thousands of activists worldwide participated in a digital sit-in to express their disapproval of the blockade. For that purpose the PayPal website was invoked so often by the demonstrators that the servers were temporarily overstrained and unable to handle any further requests.

14 demonstrators were arbitrarily prosecuted from the masses who participated. These fourteen were indicted under the "Computer Fraud and Abuse Act" despite PayPal publicly declaring that the digital sit-in did not disrupt their services at any time and no computer has been damaged or compromised. The defendants were threatened with severe jail sentences and fines...

  • Stanley Cohen (Lawyer of the Paypal 14 defendant Mercedes Haefer),
  • Bernd Fix (Lawyer, the Wau Holland Foundation),
  • Mercedes Haefer / the_n0,
  • Josh Covelli / Absolem,
