Jan 19, 2012 "I Oppose The Protect IP Act as Written"
"The Protect IP Act represents a threat to free-speech on the internet and could stifle innovation and economic growth in an industry that employs and directly affects millions of Americans. I agree with the need to address piracy online and protect intellectual property, but I am opposed to the overarching regulations contained in this bill. I hope we can address these concerns in a meaningful way, but limiting the First Amendment right to freedom of speech and stifling innovation is not the way to go about it. "
