GoDaddy Retracts SOPA Support Following Customer Backlash

Having being subject to a series of protests from its users, Internet Registration service provider has finally announced that it is no longer in favour of an effective implementation of the infamous Stop Online Piracy Act (SOAP).

Going a step further to appease the protesters who were not amused by the domain registrar's earlier stand on the issue, also stated that it is going to remove all its previous postings on the matter in order to "eliminate confusion."

After GoDaddy officially announced that it was supporting the SOAP, outraged users took to Reddit in order to express their sheer displeasure with the company's stand on the infamous act.

"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," GoDaddy CEO Warren Adelman explained, according to a report by Time.

"It's very important that all Internet stakeholders work together on this. Getting it right is worth the wait... As a company that is all about innovation, with our own technology and in support of our customers," he added.
