WikiLeaks Donations by Visa Ruled OK in Iceland

The Icelandic Supreme Court has upheld an earlier ruling against Valitor, the Icelandic subcontractor for Visa. The ruling will allow WikiLeaks to begin to collect donations again using Visa to process payments. The Icelandic ruling may be a factor in other cases pending in other European countries.

Also, WikiLeaks does not expect the ruling to be appealed. "The Icelandic Supreme Court is the highest court in Iceland," the group tweeted. "There is no avenue of appeal for Valitor/Visa."
