Internet freedom, SOPA, and GoDaddy

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

We develop Adium under an open source license because we believe in Internet freedom. The Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, is a significant threat to the future of that freedom. Although GoDaddy has officially reversed their stance on the act, we find it very concerning that it was only because of economic incentive – fleeing customers – that they now oppose it.

Adium previously had two of its domains hosted via GoDaddy. As of today, these are being transferred to another registrar,, who is donating $1 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation for each transfer.
