Threatened Boycott Leads Go Daddy To End Its SOPA Support

You see kids, consumer boycotts do actually work sometimes, especially one aimed at a company so shamelessly money-hungry that virtually all of its ad campaigns are centered around gratuitous displays of T&A.

Reports CNET:

Following criticism from customers for its support of the Senate Online Privacy Act (SOPA), domain registrar Go Daddy today said that it’s no longer backing the legislation.

“Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation – but we can clearly do better,” said Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman in a statement. “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.”

In addition, the company has also taken down blog posts where it outlined its support for portions of the bill.

Speaking of SOPA, has there been anything more meta than an anti-SOPA Hitler video?
