Default - This site provides a lot of details of what SOPA is and what it entails.

Essentially SOPA is a bill currently in debate in Congress that outlines a draconian censorship method as a way of "combating piracy", essentially giving copyright holders the ability to censor whatever content they want to with no oversight by calling it a copyright violation, causing that web site to be removed from the internet entirely. It's the same basic technology that countries like China use to censor the web.

Obviously, as someone who supports free speech, I consider this blasphemy and so should you. GoDaddy came out in support of SOPA recently, so a lot of people, us included, are leaving them and taking our business to other companies to make the point that SOPA is completely unacceptable.
