Crawford Opposes SOPA

“Much has been said about H.R. 3261, The Stop Online Piracy Act.  Since so many people have expressed concern about the bill, I want to let you know exactly where I stand.

The Internet is a vibrant marketplace today because it has operated largely without government interference.  I recognize the great damage done to American businesses and entrepreneurs by rogue sites and criminals who use the Internet to profit off the theft of American intellectual property. At the same time I know the free market operates best when policymakers and government agencies take a back seat, and when rules and regulations are narrowly written and carefully balanced.

H.R. 3261, The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), is still before the Judiciary Committee having final terms worked out.   I would not support the bill as now written were it to come before the House.

Thank you for your time and attention. Your thoughts and ideas help me better represent Arkansas’s First District.”
