GoDaddy and SOPA

In light of GoDaddy’s support for the SOPA, I will be voting with my wallet and moving my domain.
Both SOPA and the Protect IP Act (also known as PIPA) are currently making their way through Congress. The bills threaten to severely maim the openness of the Internet by imposing draconian regulations on service providers. The proposed legislation has drawn criticism from the Stanford Law Review, among others, who has claimed the bills “could have potentially disastrous consequences for the stability and security of the Internet’s addressing system, for the principle of interconnectivity that has helped drive the Internet’s extraordinary growth, and for free expression.”
I urge those who support the idea of a free Internet to do the same.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. As we’ve had many inquiries about our position on SOPA, below is a link to a statement published this past October by Go Daddy Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary Christine Jones.

Far too little and much too late. If GoDaddy had cared about the openness of the Internet and the 4th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States they would have invested their efforts in opposing this wretched legislation from the very beginning, not flip-flopping when it became unpopular or financially disadvantageous. I and all of my MANY domains are moving elsewhere and not one cent of mine will ever find its way back to GoDaddy. I hope I am not alone and that THOUSANDS of freedom-loving people around the world join me.
