Latta Statement on SOPA and PIPA
Washington, D.C. , January 18, 2012
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) issued the following statement regarding Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA):
“SOPA and PIPA are well-intentioned proposals that attempt to address online piracy concerns; however, in their current form the legislation goes too far. The proposals can present damaging ramifications to free speech, global cybersecurity and Internet functionality. At this time, I do not support SOPA and PIPA in their current form, and I hope further committee hearings will be held to resolve these concerns.
