Nov 17, 2011 Statement to The Wrap
"Leader Pelosi strongly supports protecting intellectual property. The problem of rogue websites duping consumers is a real one and deserves Congress' attention. The internet, human rights, and cybersecurity communities have raised concerns that SOPA doesn't strike the right balance that protects the needs of copyright holders and internet users alike. Tens of thousands jobs in all the affected industries require us to find an effective solution that all stakeholders can support."
