GoDaddy Withdraws Support For SOPA

Domain Registrar GoDaddy has announced that it has reversed its support for the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in response to a chorus of disapproval from the broader internet community and calls to boycott the domain name Registrar.

Big media such as Comcast, ABC, ESPN, CBS, Teamsters, Major League Baseball, Sony, Time Warner, Viacom and Warner Music support the Bill which  gives the US Government the power to censor the internet.

If passed, the Bill would compel ISPs to block access to Domain Name System servers to infringing foreign sites

Internet Service Providers and search engines would be forced to cut off access to infringing sites in addition and the government would have the legislative power to force payment providers and advertisers to shut down the ability of allegedly infringing sites to make money.
