Letter to the Los Angeles Times

Re: Privacy vs. an open Internet (November 25, 2011)

Senator Feinstein should reconsider her support of the Protect IP bill; this bill claims to protect the intellectual property rights of the owners of creative work. However Protect IP will do more collateral damage to the technology industry at the same time which helps to employ countless Californians from Facebook, Google and Twitter to name a few.

Destroying the Internet by giving the recording, movie and pharmaceutical industry veto power will not create jobs or help our economy particularly in California. Less entrepreneurs willing to take a risk online this means less jobs and opportunity to recover from the recession.
