Statement on the Protect IP Act (PIPA)

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today released the following statement on the Protect IP Act (PIPA), which targets websites primarily dedicated to providing illegally pirated intellectual property. PIPA passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by voice vote in May, and has attracted a bipartisan group of cosponsors.

"I am a strong supporter of protecting intellectual property rights, which is vital to the American economy. Online piracy is a direct threat to the competing principles of copyright protection and web freedom. I hope that the two sides will realize their shared interests and come together to help fix this problem. This is a healthy debate, and the opposition to PIPA and SOPA have raised some legitimate questions. If we can make this bill better, let's do it."
