Jan 18, 2012 Statement (undecided)
"It is clear that the original version of PIPA raises serious concerns. Substantial changes must be made to the legislation that will ensure the free and open nature of the Internet."
Jan 17, 2012 Letter to constituent
"The Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property (PROTECT IP) Act of 2011? (S. 968) would give law enforcement additional tools to combat the illegal online sale of counterfeit or copyright infringing goods. Specifically, this bill would give the Attorney General the power to serve issued court orders on search engines, payment processors, advertising networks, and Internet service providers. It would allow suit against site operators, but would not allow law enforcement to block access to a site. This bill would also require plaintiffs to sue the owner or registrant of a domain name before bringing suit against a site itself."
