Obama Seeks Compromise on Anti-Piracy Legislation

In response to a question during his first Google+ hangout with a handful of voters about whether the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act would levy "too much censorship on the Internet," President Obama stopped short of saying he opposes the legislation. "I think that it's going to be possible for us" to find a workable approach, Obama said during the event broadcast on YouTube, predicting that it's possible to protect Hollywood's interests without "affecting the fundamental integrity of the Internet as an open, transparent system."
