Major League Gaming Steps Up Fight Against SOPA

The dreaded, and ridiculous "Stop Online Piracy Act" has upset a lot of people, who in turn have spent a lot of time saying how upset they are. It's also upset a rather large gaming enterprise, who have put their money where their mouth is.


Following the decision late last year by hosting provider GoDaddy to support the proposed bill, Major League gaming has removed its entire network, which is made up of over 100 individual domains, from GoDaddy, and moved them to rival firm Namecheap.

The MLG says it made the move because it "is firmly against both the specifics of SOPA and the philosophy behind the bill".


Note that GoDaddy nominally withdrew its support of SOPA almost a week prior to the MLG's public announcement of the move, though how serious the company was about such an about-face remains to be seen.
