WASHINGTON, D.C. — NetCoalition, a group of Internet and technology companies, has launched a radio advertising campaign in Nevada opposing the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). Both bills will create onerous regulations that will devastate the technology sector, the group argues.
“Our ability to innovate, invest and grow the economy is dependent upon keeping the Internet open and free,” Markham Erickson, executive director of NetCoalition, said in a press release. “The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) would stifle innovation, censor free and lawful speech and reduce investment in the Internet sector — one of the few areas of our economy growing, thriving and hiring. Nevadans must reach out to their representatives in Congress and let them know the Internet is too important to let these seriously flawed pieces of legislation pass.”
