Paypal refusing to release crowdfunding money
PC indie fighting game Yatagarasu raised nearly $120K in their recent indiegogo campaign. Except none of that matters now because Paypal has decided to withhold the money
what does this mean for the future of crowdfunding when a company like paypal can effectively cancel a crowdfunded game in this manner?

Is this the twentieth or the hundredth time they have done this.I am once again writing a blog, vaguely about playing games the wrong way

I think it's getting to the point where we have to say, "Don't ever use paypal." Not only this business, but it seems if you are politically opposed to paypal they may also prevent people from giving you money.

paypal is great for sending payment. I guess Ill have to see when I end up with GOG how they process their monies.

Is this something only related to Indiegogo and PayPal or are successful kickstarter projects also getting screwed by this?

I guess this is why Kickstarter don't take PayPal. Well, this and the fees.

Well, what do you know!
In the wake of repeated outcry over frozen accounts, PayPal has announced it will be revisiting its policies to better take into account crowdfunding campaigns.
