Langevin opposes SOPA; ‘incompatible’ with cybersecurity

As predicted here on Nesi’s Notes, Congressman Jim Langevin has come out against the Stop Online Piracy Act. “While I strongly support protecting our intellectual property, SOPA’s methods are incompatible with efforts to maintain the security and openness of the internet,” he said in a statement.

Langevin is the first of Rhode Island’s four members of Congress to take a position on the legislation, as far as I know. More on Politico Morning Tech.

Update: Anchor Rising’s Patrick Laverty reports U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse is sponsoring the Senate version of SOPA.
