Censorship has always been an issue in literature. From banned books to burnt ones, there has always been a faction of society that attempts to dictate what we can or cannot read. This time it's PayPal.

Smashwords has been asked by PayPal to remove fiction that contains bestiality, rape and incest. They have stated that this request comes from an effort to stay in compliance with the rules of banks and credit card companies.

Even if I have no desire to read about these topics, which I don't, I still find it an infringement on my right of choice. Should a payment method which uses my money, money I've earned, have the ability to decide what it or isn't moral enough for me to read?
