Griffin Taking ‘Second Look’ at SOPA

Update on a story I posted earlier: Rep. Tim Griffin (AR-2) now says he is taking a ‘second look’ at his co-sponsorship of SOPA.

From Rep. Griffin’s Facebook page:

Stopping theft of American intellectual property by foreign rogue web sites is critical to protect ideas and jobs. I welcome input on SOPA from all sides, and I share some concerns of constituents who have contacted me. I was hopeful we could revise SOPA to address concerns raised, and I remain hopeful. However, I am taking a second look at SOPA to see if that is possible. I will not support a bill unless my constituents are comfortable with it.

You can weigh in on the Facebook conversation or email the congressman here.

    It all boils down to freedom & control, period. The government cannot stand the Internet. You can say what you think on the ‘Net & the government can’t stop you(until now). They want to be able to censor what you say especially about them. People can now communicate & get info in a heartbeat & the gov’t does not like it. This ain’t the old days.
