Boing Boing: Mozilla pulls a popular paywall circumvention tool from Firefox add-ons store

Boing Boing: Mozilla pulls a popular paywall circumvention tool from Firefox add-ons store. “Bypass Paywalls is a free software project maintained by Iamadamdev and hosted on Github. On November 17, Iamadamdev updated the project’s Readme file to announce that Mozilla had removed the extension from its Add-Ons Store; according to Iamadamdev, the add-on was removed for violating Mozilla’s terms-of-service; but they dispute that the project violates those terms.”
