GoDaddy CryingSupporting the anti-public "PROTECT IP Act" or "Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)" had some serious negative effect for the company as the PR nightmare evoked mass-transfers of domain-names from the company to other registrars, the anti-SOPA sentiments on the web made godaddy users transfers-out 37,000+ domains in just two days to other registrars - taking swift action under "damage-control" Godaddy has now officially revoked their support to the SOPA bill and is requesting users to stay with them.

Anti-SOPA supporters are doing everything in their capacity to oppose the bill and further make the internet community stance clear on the issue by voicing their opinions like, reddit post, and a crowd-sourced list of SOPA supporting companies which one should boycott. We also oppose #SOPA and would strongly urge users to oppose the same - to understand the negative effects of this bill an infographic and video is posted after the jump (must see for every computer user).

Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! -

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is "dedicated to copyright infringement."

The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix that won't work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.
