Google, Visa, Paypal, Mastercard to block illegal websites

Wednesday 20 February 2013 | 08:28 AM CET

Google has joined forces with Visa, Paypal and Mastercard to block illegal websites from receiving funding, online media outlet Telegraph reveals.

According to the source, executives have revealed plans to stop websites more or less dedicated to offering links to pirated films, music and books from making money out of the illegal material. The initiative, still in discussion, would also block funding to websites that do not respond to legal challenges, for example because they are offshore.
