Supreme Court of Iceland rules firm must process donations for WikiLeaks | Ars Technica

On Wednesday, the Icelandic Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling finding that Valitor (formerly VISA Iceland) had illegally terminated a contract with DataCell, WikiLeaks’ Icelandic Web host, thereby stopping processing donations to the embattled site.

Valitor will now be forced to pay 800,000 Icelandic krónur ($6,824) per day if the gateway to WikiLeaks donations is not reopened within 15 days, according to the group.
