Jan 18, 2012 Statement against SOPA
“While I certainly oppose online piracy, I cannot support the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). I have long believed that the Internet must remain open to protect access to information and our right to free speech. An open Internet is essential to the technical innovation on which our nation thrives.”
