In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, NetChoice executive director Steve DelBianco discusses recently introduced bills designed to combat Organized Retail Crime. In his testimony, DelBianco argues that:
“These three ORC bills would impose extraordinary and discriminatory restrictions on Internet marketplaces that help millions of people to legitimately buy and sell products every day. I understand that retailers feel frustrated about their efforts to stop ORC, but that does not justify shifting blame and burdens to online marketplaces. These ORC bills are intended for loss prevention, but they include dangerous tools for competition prevention-preventing online marketplaces from competing with big retailers.”
