Today, January 26th, the “Paypal 14” are back in court. The Paypal 14 are accused of participating in DDoS attacks on Paypal when Paypal – in conjunction with Visa and Mastercard – cut off financial services to Wikileaks.
We have been following the Paypal 14 cases closely and today’s trial is one of many the group will go through before anything is decided. The outcome of these trials will define not just how we see DDoS but the larger question of the right to protest online.
Here Stanley Cohen, the attorney for Mercedes Haefer, talks over what they are going through and their stance on DDoS.
