Jan 4, 2012 Boilerplate letter to constituent
"As you may know, the Stop Online Piracy Act was introduced in the House by Congressman Lamar Smith on October 26, 2011. The bill would authorize the Attorney General to seek a court order against a U.S. directed foreign Internet site committing or facilitating online piracy to require the owner, operator, or domain name registrant, or the site or domain name itself if such persons are unable to be found, to cease and desist further activities constituting specified intellectual property offenses under the federal criminal code including criminal copyright infringement, unauthorized fixation and trafficking of sound recordings or videos of live musical performances, the recording of exhibited motion pictures, or trafficking in counterfeit labels, goods, or services. H.R.3261 has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary for further debate and consideration. While I do not have the pleasure of serving on this particular committee, I will keep your views in mind should it appear before the entire House for a vote."
