Make Credit Card Companies Face Penalties For Funding Unlawful Trade

Comment 15th July 2010

There are, rightly, severe penalties for downloading child pornography via the internet. However, this is normally possible only when the purchaser uses their credit card. Thus the credit card companies are complict in the unlawful supply of such images. No seller can accept card payments without an elaborate procedure to set it up with the card company. Therefore, the identity of the seller must be known to the credit card company and they profit from the unlawful sales. 

Why does this matter?

The card companies are key to internet trading and must be made to face their responsibilites and face penalties for profiting from crime.
