SOPA: Go Daddy’s Involvement

According to the December 23 press release, Go Daddy has been actively working with legislators on the crafting of the language in the bill, but has acknowledged that the bill, as it stands, is not ready for prime-time. The official statement reads, “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.” At this time, it appears that the Internet community emphatically does not support SOPA. Decoded Science has not yet received a response to a request for comment from Go Daddy on this topic.
