Who can keep up with SOPA?
I sure can’t. Did you hear GoDaddy supported SOPA? And now they supposedly don’t anymore. But as boingboing points out, Who Needs SOPA when GoDaddy has a completely horrible takedown policy?
The Positive Internet Company explains how SOPA is terrible for everyone in and outside the US and why GoDaddy is so bad. They’ll even help you move away from GoDaddy even if you don’t take your business to them. And Jason Kottke gives you more reasons to hate GoDaddy.
Here’s how to move away from GoDaddy.
- EFF reviews their fight against the Internet blacklist bills in 2011.
- SOPA would punish Americans who “contribute expertise to projects that can be used to defeat its censorship regime” including Tor which helps fight censorship in repressive regimes. And which I’ve used to fight repressive IT depts at corporate jobs who try to tell me what sites I can and can’t surf.
- Adam Savage weighed in on SOPA: “Honestly, if a friend wrote these into a piece of fiction about government oversight gone amok, I’d have to tell them that they were too one-dimensional, too obviously anticonstitutional.”
- Leah Kaufman wrote an anti-SOPA song
- Dan Bull crowdsourced an anti-SOPA rap
- The MPAA says SOPA-style censorship works in Yemen and Syria
- Law professors explained what’s wrong with SOPA constitutionally
And of course, Hitler is upset:
The text to that Hitler parody is perfect:
“You don’t get to destroy the internet just because it doesn’t fit your business model.”
