Congressman Mark S. Critz (PA-12) released the following statement in response to today's announcement by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) that his committee won't take up the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) until "there is wider agreement on a solution:"

"I believe that we must protect American innovation and the intellectual property rights of individuals, while maintaining a free and open world wide-web. SOPA in its current form is unacceptable, and I applaud the House Judiciary Committee's decision today to halt the advancement of this legislation until wider agreement can be found on a solution to address the problem of online piracy."
