Go Daddy’s SOPA Entanglement


It’s one thing for congresscritters who wouldn’t known an Internet Protocol (IP) address from a domain name to support the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), it’s another thing entirely for a top Internet domain registry company like Go Daddy to support SOPA. I mean Internet companies may not know anything about the First Amendment—something like far too many Congressmen come to think of it–but Go Daddy should certainly know their Internet technologies and what their customers would think of Go Daddy fouling up their Internet.

What’s that? Newly appointed Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman has yanked his company’s support for SOPA. Really? Look at what he said again. He started fine, “Go Daddy is no longer supporting SOPA, the ‘Stop Online Piracy Act’ currently working its way through U.S. Congress.”

But, then Adelman started to waffle.
