Public Knowledge Disappointed by Scheduling of SOPA Markup

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Smith just announced that markup of SOPA will resume at 9:00 A.M. on Wednesday, December 21, 2011.

The following statement is attributed to Sherwin Siy, deputy legal director of Public Knowledge:

"Continuing a markup on December 21, when many members may well be absent, demonstrates a clear desire to continue dodging the questions raised by experts, members, and the public.

"This unwillingness to take expert evidence, listen to constituents, or conduct due diligence in investigating the extraordinary harms risked by SOPA shows a process divorced from representation, responsibility, and reality."
