GoDaddy Facing Possible Boycott Over SOPA Support

As the U.S. House pledges to continue pushing for the passage of the Stop Online Piracy Act next year, companies supporting the legislation are increasingly coming under fire. Old media like the movie and TV industries are obviously in favor of it, but most tech firms are opposed. One internet heavyweight that is in favor of SOPA is domain registrar GoDaddy. Now that everyone has caught wind of that, many are proposing a "Move Your Domain Away From GoDaddy Day."

The Reddit thread where the idea of a boycott first started has over 4000 upvotes and 2000 comments, most of them supportive of the boycott. Other registrars are using the opportunity to promote their services, and are offering former GoDaddy users discounts to switch. Would you move domains from GoDaddy if this picks up steam?...
