Nick sez, "I wrote a post on my company's blog (The Positive Internet Company) explaining why SOPA is a big deal not just in the US, but for the Internet as a whole. We have rescued a number of sites from malign censorship (like Dr Ben Goldacre's 'Bad Science' blog), so we know exactly how such laws will be abused. The SOPA-quislings GoDaddy have attempted recently to increase their market-share in the United Kingdom by advertising on the London Underground with posters of semi-nude women. We respect many of our competitors; but GoDaddy are tainting the reputation of our industry. As such, we will help people to migrate domains away from them, even if to other competitors of ours." Speaking of which, let me reiterate my personal satisfaction with Hover for domain registration and DNS.
