Manhattan: The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) are examples of political overreach, threatening the innovation and development of the Internet. It is our hope that lawmakers will not impede the growth of the Internet or the public’s access to online content by passing laws that aim to censor and unnecessarily target content providers and search engines in an arbitrary and capricious manner.
 
Gerard F. Corbett, chairman & CEO, Public Relations Society of America
