In a letter to FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz from Sen. Herb Kohl the panel’s chairman, and Mike Lee, the ranking member they urge an anti-trust probe of Google. That’s par for the course and really not that interesting — what’s more interesting is this statement near the end of the letter:
Rather, our interest is to enure robust competition in this vital market. We recognize that the Internet is fast evolving and subject to rapid technological change. We are motivated by a strong desire to protect the Internet’s openness, competitiveness, and capacity for innovation.
One would think that SOPA is more damanging than Google. ↩
