YouTube description: "On January 19, 2012, Congressman Frank Guinta (R, NH-01) read a letter from Colleen in Portsmouth, NH regarding her opposition to SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act).

Jan 17, 2012 States "severe reservations" about SOPA
"Although well intentioned, many have raised legitimate concerns regarding the legislation and believe the manner in which SOPA attempts to achieve its goals of stopping the theft of intellectual property from foreign-based websites is unworkable and includes many unintended and dangerous consequences. I am writing today to inform you that I have severe reservations with the legislation in its current form. ...One of the main issues regarding SOPA, is it would force Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block access to websites that have been accused of facilitating copyright infringement. Blocking access will likely slow down internet connectivity, while eroding the necessary trust the system needs. It would also set a dangerous precedent of allowing our government - and others - to filter domains. Fortunately, all sides have signaled this provision should be dropped. "
