GOODLATTE APPLAUDS REMOVAL OF DNS BLOCKING

Congressman Bob Goodlatte (VA-R), Chairman of the Intellectual Property, Competition and the Internet Subcommittee released this statement following the announcement that the DNS blocking provision would be stripped from the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA):

“I applaud Chairman Smith for announcing he is taking out the DNS blocking from SOPA. Based on extensive conversations I have had with him and with tech leaders on this issue, it has become clear that more discussion with tech industry leaders and engineers about how best to approach this issue needs to take place."
