Jan 18, 2012 Statement against SOPA/PIPA
"Piracy of intellectual property is a legitimate concern that should be addressed. However, the PROTECT IP Act and the Stop Internet Piracy Act are flawed, and I cannot support them in their current form. I look forward to working with my Senate colleagues on this issue and finding a better legislative approach for tackling online piracy."
Jan 13, 2012 Interview with the Wayne Independent
In response to the question "Do you support Protect IP?": "There is a version in the Senate that I am unlikely to support."
