Timeline: Rep. Courtney and SOPA

A list of statements and legislative actions made by Rep. Courtney relating to SOPA. Contact us at sopa[at] if you have additions or corrections.

Jan 17, 2012 States that SOPA should be scrapped
“Online piracy is a serious problem that must be addressed, but doing so should not muzzle free speech, stifle innovation or harm cybersecurity. SOPA as it exists today fails that standard, and it should be scrapped entirely. An axe instead of a scalpel, this bill would unacceptably and fundamentally change the architecture of the internet. The Judiciary Committee should start from scratch and craft a solution that ensures due process from a public entity that resolves infringement issues."
