The European Parliament voted that the Commission introduce legislation to determine when credit card companies can deny payments:

"32. Considers it likely that there will be a growing number of European companies whose activities are effectively dependent on being able to accept payments by card; considers it to be in the public interest to define objective rules describing the circumstances and procedures under which card payment schemes may unilaterally refuse acceptance;"

It is not acceptable that private corporations have the power of [controlling] free speech."
