Death to SOPA!

If you don't know anything about SOPA yet, please check this: http://techcrunch.com/2011/12/15/sopa-brad-burnham/

In a nutshell, this is censorship at its worst. And it is a real threat to the internet. But I'm not going to ramble on about how bad it is. Watch the video in the above link and you should get the picture. Instead, I'm going to write about what you can do to fight this:

  1. Are you hosting anything with Godaddy?
    They support SOPA and we would like to urge anybody using them to please transfer their domains away. By supporting them, you are supporting SOPA. Furthermore, Namhost will gladly assist you in affordable transfers so you are not forced to suffer because of this. Contact us for more assistance.
  2. Email oop@godaddy.com
    This is the highest non-corporate e-mail address you can e-mail and tell them how appalled you are.
  3. Pledge your boycot here: http://godaddyboycott.org
  4. SHARE!
    Spread the word! Share this link and share the above link and just make sure the world knows whats going on, so that people can stop using Godaddy and other companies that support SOPA, the very thing that could kill the internet

Unfortunately, this is all you can do at the moment. We are trying to find more things you can do, and will update this post as we find out more.

Update: (28 December 2011)

We received a response from GoDaddy after mentioning that we will be moving our business away from them:

Go Daddy is no longer supporting SOPA.
"Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation - but we can clearly do better," Warren Adelman, Go Daddy's newly appointed CEO, said. "It's very important that all Internet stakeholders work together on this. Getting it right is worth the wait. Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it."

It's clear they got a huge fright when they started losing customers. To be honest, I think it might be a little late for them. I'm still going to move business away from them.
