Timeline: Rep. Lofgren and SOPA

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

Dec 2, 2011 Joined discussion and drafting of alternative law (OPEN Act)
The anti-SOPA/PIPA coalition drafts an alternate proposal to give regulatory power to the International Trade Commission.
Dec 2, 2011 Press release
"This bipartisan alternative [the OPEN Act] is offered as a serious step toward building meaningful consensus to curb online piracy, which is a real and legitimate concern for me and my colleagues. The strength of this alternative is that it focuses on remedies that are proven to work without doing unnecessary collateral damage."
Nov 17, 2011 Signed letter opposing SOPA to Judiciary committee leadership.
The letter states that: "The SOPA as written, however, is overly broad and would cause serious and long term damage to the technology industry, one of the few bright spots in our economy."
Nov 14, 2011 Interview with IEEE Spectrum's Techwise Conversations
"Blocking DNS sites would encourage users to use alternative unregulated DNS servers, which are more likely to be compromised in the first place, and the filtering scheme really sets a terrible precedent for the Internet: For the first time, the U.S. government would be ordering ISPs to enforce a blacklist of banned websites."
