SOPA: what if it passes?
Dreamhost has taken a stand against SOPA:
http://blog.dreamhost.com/2011/11/22/don...drop-sopa/

Plan A is to try to stop this legislation, but what is plan B?

If this passes, wouldn't plan B be to move our sites and domain registrations to a jurisdiction outside the control of the US government?

Could Dreamhost start to offer their services in another country or at the very least move its registration services to a more friendly jurisdiction?

Plan B: Something like Napster moving to Vanuatu, or was it Kazaa moving to Tokelau? Something like that.

I was thinking more of certain European countries and Canada...

I think you'd want to avoid countries which have good relations with the US though... It provides a little extra space between your website and the very loooooooooooooooong arm of American justice!

The EU parliament has been quite outspoken against the principles behind SOPA, I don't think this particular arm of American justice is going to be particularly long. (Remember the Helms Burton act?)

Last I heard, some countries were moving to control their "own internet" such as Korea, and block anything they don't like..
Sort of but not quite SOPA.. still a dumb idea.
