Jan 18, 2012 States opposition to SOPA in its current form
"One of the driving forces behind the U.S. economy is its ability to protect the property rights of its citizens. Unfortunately, many foreign nations fail to respect those same rights overseas. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) may be a well-intentioned tool to protect intellectual property, but I oppose it in its current form. The Internet has seen an explosion of innovation and growth in large part because it has been void of the heavy hand of the federal government. While I share the goals of protecting the freedom of the Internet and defending the rights of intellectual property owners, I have concerns that SOPA could lead to too much government intervention and control."
