Washington, D.C. - Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the SOPA legislation:
I am fully supportive of the need to pass legislation in this Congress to combat intellectual piracy, specifically dealing with rogue digital theft sites. This legislation needs to be effective from the perspective of rights holders.
It is incumbent on the parties that are concerned by the current proposal to offer changes that would effectively deal with piracy. We must work together for an effective solution.
