Jan 18, 2012 States opposition to SOPA
“I strongly oppose SOPA, even though I remain concerned about the significant problem of online piracy. Over 800 Iowans have already contacted me expressing their opposition to SOPA, telling me it threatens free speech online. I agree. America’s great strength has always been innovation built on the open exchange of ideas. Every new idea is built on the shoulders of those that preceded it. Limiting the free exchange of information online would stifle technological progress and put the United States at a competitive disadvantage with other nations. That’s the wrong move for American innovation and advancement.”
