PayPal revises its decision on banning erotica

Several days ago, PayPal came out with a revised version of its decision to ban certain categories of ebooks from the online marketplace.

Instead of focusing on categories as a whole, the online payment processing company intends to focus on individual books that "contain child pornography, or e-books with text and obscene images of a rape, bestiality or incest."

This should be considered a victory for the indie authors as PayPal seemingly intended to cause a disruption in the entire ebook world with the ramifications of its original decision affecting hundreds of authors and dozens of ebooks sites.

This allows more legal fiction to flow in the marketplace. People should not be censored.
