Submission + - Go Daddy still officially supports SOPA. (

blind biker writes: Much has been said in the previous few days of Go Daddy's support for the SOPA and PIPA bills. Go Daddy has helped draft SOPA, but reacting to a boycott campaign initiated from a Reddit post, the reviled registrar decided to engage in a half-hearted PR move to stop the exodus. Many have warned that Go Daddy hasn't truly changed stance, only that they will hide their true intentions from the public view from now on. Well, it turns out Go Daddy's general counsel and corporate secretary (who helped draft SOPA) still throws the company's weight firmly behind the bill. In her blog post, Christine Jones signs in her official figure of Go Daddy representative, and states: In our view, Internet policy should strive to balance the sometimes competing goals of the global free flow of information (which is clearly critical to U.S. businesses), with enforcement of the rule of law. We don't see those competing goals as mutually exclusive, but rather, complimentary. In fact, that balance is essential to a flourishing, yet safe, Internet. As you can see, there is absolutely no reason not to take part in the Dump Go Daddy Day by moving your domains to an anti-SOPA registrar. Here is an easy, step-by-step illustrated guide on how to move your domains out of Go Daddy.
