Go Daddy faces boycott threat from SOPA opponents

John Ribeiro | Dec. 23, 2011
Internet domain registrar Go Daddy is facing a boycott threat after it figured in a list of supporters of the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

In an Oct. 28 statement titled "Online Copyright Laws Won't Prevent a Flourishing Internet", Go Daddy had argued that "While increasing demands on intermediaries are less than desirable for all of us, we can't just turn a blind eye to illegal conduct online."

Go Daddy has been sending messages on Twitter asking customers to check the blog post to view the details of the company's position on SOPA. "We have worked with the House Judiciary Committee to make changes we believe are necessary and have made attempts to work with the rest of the leaders in the Internet ecosystem to ensure the final version of the bill is acceptable to everyone involved," it said in the blog post.
