Jan 11, 2012 Letter to Riot Games CEO
"I'm particularly concerned that SOPA might stifle the kind of innovation that brings us games we love, such as [League of Legends]. The bill makes it far too easy for angry competitors to sue good law abiding companies out of existence."

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
"The most effective way to combat online piracy is by treating piracy as the foreign trade issue it is. Governments controlling the Internet, as China has done, whether it is done under the pretense of restricting speech or rights infringement, is not a direction that the United States should encourage."
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."
