Senator Dodd Statement on Democratic Platform Language
September 04, 2012
The following is a statement by Senator Chris Dodd, Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA), on the Democratic Party’s platform language on intellectual property and internet freedom:
am extremely pleased that the Democratic Party’s platform language
reinforces the critical importance of protecting America’s intellectual
property while ensuring the free flow of information on the Internet.
The Internet is a nearly unparalleled source of creativity and
innovation, not just in the entertainment community, but across nearly
every sector of the U.S. economy. Protecting that source of creativity,
as well as protecting the rights of the people behind that creativity,
is integral not just to our economy, but to who we are as a nation.
