WikiLeaks Wins Case Against VISA Iceland

WikiLeaks won a victory over censorship this week, albeit a small one. The courts in Iceland sided with WikiLeaks in a suit against VISA Iceland, requiring the company to reopen the donations to WikiLeaks with 14 days or face daily fines for failure to comply. VISA plans to appeal the decision.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said "This is a significant victory against Washington's attempt to silence WikiLeaks. We will not be silenced. Economic censorship is censorship. It is wrong".
