Thought I would share this short letter I received yesterday (via email) in response to sharing my comments re: SOPA/PIPA with RI State Senator Jack Reed. Kudos to the senator for siding with his constituents!Not Sure if this was a general response… but nice to get a reply regardless!

Response from Senator Jack Reed, RI
Dear Mr. Castillo:
Thank you for making sure I knew of your concerns with PIPA and SOPA.
Like you, I believed these bills were too broad and could have damaging impacts on innovation and other important policy goals. I am pleased that bills were pulled from consideration by the Senate and House of Representatives.
Now, the task is to ensure that we find a way to balance the real economic costs of Chinese and other international piracy with concerns about security and Internet fairness. I plan to be part of that dialogue, and I look forward to hearing from you about this and other issues in the future.
As always, please do not hesitate to write, call, or visit my website, www.reed.senate.gov, for information regarding this or any other matter.
United States Senator
