Rep. Calvert Statement on SOPA/PIPA

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

"I have received many calls on SOPA and PIPA - bills that seek to address online piracy and counterfeiting. While I believe that foreign infringing activity is a substantial problem, I also believe that any solution must vigilantly preserve an open and vibrant global Internet. That is why I am currently not a cosponsor of SOPA (PIPA is the Senate version of SOPA). Your calls and posts have resonated on Capitol Hill -- a consensus must be reached among all interested parties on this issue and I appreciate your input. Currently there is no vote scheduled in the House on SOPA, the Senate is debating and voting on PIPA next week."
