Dear Senator,

I am concerned about the implications SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, and PIPA, the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011, have on our nation’s stance on freedom of speech, in addition to its prospects for economic growth. These bills pose a real threat to every online business in the United States. Furthermore, these bills contradict the United States’ foreign policies, which encourage greater Internet freedom.

Technologists and small businesses have been shut out from the bills’ formative process, and have been denied an opportunity to communicate the issues inherent in this form of legislation. The lobbyists supporting this legislation represent a single portion of this nation’s economy; it is out of bounds to force compliance in a manner that taxes legitimate businesses.

I oppose SOPA, PIPA, and other bills of this nature.

Thank you.
