Ros-Lehtinen Statement On SOPA

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the legislation "Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

"Although we can all agree that it is important to safeguard intellectual property against piracy, I do not believe the SOPA bill in its current form is the best approach.

As written, the SOPA bill has the potential to open a Pandora's Box; unintended consequences that could stifle free speech and inhibit innovation.

The goal should be to come up with the right piece of legislation that will protect access to the free flowing exchange of ideas that the internet provides, while also addressing the piracy issue.

I would urge my colleagues to take a moment to rethink the SOPA bill and to come up with a new piece of legislation that will meet this objective."
