The first rule of business, is to not take sides on topics that can impact your bottom line. Wikileaks was not breaking the law, and there was no court order to tell MC, Visa and Paypal to shutdown Wikileaks payment services.
I am really surprized that these companies got involved. This shows some real lack of strategic vision on the board of directors of these corporations.
I would love to put a banner ad on my site to support Wikileaks; but I would lose about 20% of my sales to the uninformed uneducated people that support secrecy and hidden agendas.
