Ayotte Statement on Protect IP Legislation
WASHINGTON, DC-- U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, announced today that she will withdraw her cosponsorship of the Protect IP Act (S. 968) citing the many concerns that have been raised by New Hampshire citizens about the potential impact of the legislation:
"America's innovators and consumers need to be protected from the very real problem of online piracy. However, the overwhelming input I've received from New Hampshire citizens makes it clear there are many legitimate concerns that deserve further consideration before Congress moves forward on this legislation."
