Boycott of GoDaddy over SOPA bill a barometer of Internet politics

GoDaddy, a major registrar of website names, is facing customer defections because the company supported the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA), which critics say would stifle the Internet.

@boomerang,
This is the first time I read about the GODaddy issue but according to the article, you're partially right:
Quote:
"Since the announcement of the boycott of GoDaddy, GoDaddy has just publicly dropped their support of the heinous Stop Online Piracy Act or SOPA," the website GoDaddyboycott.org says.

"But, they still support the Senate version of SOPA, called PIPA or PROTECT-IP. If you work on the internet and do business with GoDaddy you're supporting a company who is actively working against your best interests."

They're losing a lot of customers so, in response, they are (shakes head) treating us still existing customers great!


-- by nagging me now for domains that expire in March.

@tsarstepan,
Yeah, probably. It's something for me to investigate this weekend.

I canceled my GoDaddy account as part of the Arizona boycott after SB1070. I regret that I have but one boycott to give for my country.
