Leonard Napolitano, Sandia’s director of computer sciences and information systems, warned in a letter that the legislation is “unlikely to be effective” and will “negatively impact U.S. and global cybersecurity and Internet functionality.”

Napolitano sent a letter in response to a request for a critique of the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, from Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat who represents the heart of Silicon Valley. Lofgren is leading opposition in the House of Representatives to SOPA.

“If you take a look at this letter from Sandia Labs, I don’t see you how you can possibly proceed” with SOPA, Lofgren told CNET.
