Consumers Flex Muscles, Force Go Daddy To Reverse 'Stop Online Piracy Act' Stance

On Friday, after consumers announced they were taking their business elsewhere and dropped 21,000 domains, domain name registrar GoDaddy.com pulled its support from the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Go Daddy announced they would take a second look at SOPA after extremely negative feedback received regarding the legislation.

A boycott was threatened on Thursday with PC World reporting:

“Reddit user selfprodigy said he was pulling 51 domain names from GoDaddy because of the registrar’s support of SOPA. The same day, Ben Huh, CEO of the Cheezburger family of humor websites said said his company would move its 1,000-plus domains off Go Daddy unless it dropped its support for the bill, known as SOPA. On Friday, Wikipedia cofounder Jimmy Wales also threatened to move from Go Daddy. “Their position on SOPA is unacceptable to us,” Wales said in a tweet.

“It’s clear to us the bill’s not ready in its current form,” Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman said in a statement on Friday. “Looking at this over the last 20 hours, we’re not seeing consensus in the Internet community, we’re hearing the feedback from our customers.” Adelman said a huge reason GoDaddy switched its position was because of feedback from customers.
