Stance on SOPAEdit

Representative Goodlatte is a supporter of the Stop Online Piracy Act, and he is a co-sponsor of the legislation. Goodlatte has stated that one of the primary reasons for his support of SOPA is an effort to combat piracy that results in the loss of American jobs.[1]

Critics of the legislation contend that the bill aims to overturn the notice and take down provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Goodlatte has said that "it is unrealistic to think we’re going to continue to rely on the DMCA notice-and-takedown provision."[2]
