Jan 19, 2012 Statement against SOPA/PIPA
"Thanks for all of the comments. As I said, you've brought up some valid concerns. To be clear -- I would not vote for Protect IP or SOPA. I want all sides to come to a common-sense agreement that protects against piracy but doesn't harm our economic growth."
Jan 19, 2012 Will not vote for PIPA
"Thanks for your comments. I will not vote for #PIPA. We need a common-sense agreement that fights piracy without harming economic growth."
Jan 17, 2012 Statement (undecided)
"I believe that we need to address online piracy of intellectual property. This is an important jobs issue. Recently, several Coloradans have raised valid concerns about potential unintended consequences that could result from the Protect IP Act as it is currently written and that could compromise our economic growth. Because of the complexity and technical nature of this issue, we should come to an agreement that protects against online piracy but that avoids these consequences before we move forward."
