Dec 15, 2011 Statement during House Judiciary committee markup of SOPA
"I am certainly opposed to copyright infringement, and for those of you who remember the late Chairman Henry Hyde, we began to work on those issues even then. The question is, of course, how this legislation will impact the enhancement of jobs or the denial of jobs, and certainly I am concerned about all of those who are tied to the industries of intellectual genius, such as the media and movie industry, and clearly we do not want to enhance the loss of jobs. But there are sufficient loopholes here that would allow innocent sites to be shut down, thereby a loss of jobs. Have we answered the question dealing with national security? And as well are we recognizing the value of the First Amendment?"
