    In a recent report, CQ Researcher explored how businesses and government security officials are beginning to hire "good" hackers, who may be able to counter attacks by cybercriminals. Professor Derek Bambauer weighed in on the legal aspects of this emerging complex issue, emphasizing the importance of a legal structure that does not criminalize valuable hacking, such as those performing security research. Copyright law should include a "default presumption that hackers doing security research are acting lawfully," he argues, and in return, good hackers must pledge not to use any information they have discovered to do harm.
