George Lemieux on Technology

 


Protect intellectual property but not via PIPA and SOPA

Q: PIPA and SOPA--for or against? [referring to two bills that would restrict the Internet to protect copyright]

A: I would have voted against them due to the language drafted in those particular bills. However, we do need to protect intellectual property rights just like any other property right under the U.S. Constitutions. We also need to encourage innovation and the power of peoples' ideas on the internet.

Reinstate space race with China and India

Q: The Space Shuttle Discovery left this morning for its final piggy back over Florida's Space Coast. What is your vision for the future of the U.S. Space Program?

A: Sen. Nelson and Pres. Obama have killed the US space program. American exceptionalism is going to the museum right along with the space shuttle. Today our space program is in shambles, we lost over 7,000 jobs on the Space Coast with no plans for the future of the U.S. space program.

We need to have a real solution for the space program before China and India get ahead of us. I don't want to live in America where the Chinese have planted a flag on the moon.

As for Newt Gingrich's call for a moon colony--that is a little far-fetched. We don't even have a space program right now. We rely on commercial companies for low earth orbit launches, which is great. But let's have a real definitive plan.

The Constellation program Congress passed was a quarter measure, not even a half measure, for the future of a real US space program.
