Paypal blocks German business because of the 1962 Cuba embargo title edit


www.golem.de

The German company, Rum & Co has been asked by Paypal to "Remove any Cuban cigars from their website, which violate the PayPal terms of use". The U.S. company eBay is committed to the embargo against Cuba and wanted to prevent the trade in goods from the country. Shortly after that "warning", their shop got completly blocked from Paypal, because they also run Cuban rum and other goods from Cuba. Even ashtrays were affected, said Altmannm (lawyer). "We do not do it. We see absolutely no reason to do so. We deliver within the European Union. I do not knew that American companies simply want to dictate anything to us," said Altmann. Paypal: "By our own discretion, we reserve the right to close accounts at any time" and "to limit payment sources and payments, limit access to an account or all account features."

other busnisses are also effected...

these T&C are violating german law becuase they are handled like a bank in europe...

So these US companies which operate globally are trying to enforce US policy on non US citizens, do I understand that correctly?

Yes, because nations use their most successful companies as geopolitical tools.

Hollywood is another one of these OBVIOUS branches.

Call me crazy but the US seems to do everything it can to affect the EU in the economy, today Cyprus has been downgraded because they MIGHT be needing help from the EU, not do, but MIGHT.
And now with higher bond rates because of the downgrade, it will certainly be more likely.
