Jan 18, 2012 States opposition to SOPA/PIPA
"I support intellectual property rights, but I oppose SOPA and PIPA because they are misguided bills that will cause more harm than good. The Internet is a shining example of a successful market. It is a showcase of vibrant innovation, competition, and individual empowerment, and Congress must take great care with any legislation that could affect its fundamental operations. In seeking to protect intellectual property rights, we must ensure that we do not undermine free speech, threaten economic growth, or impose burdensome regulations."
