Legalise Cyber Privateers
Because world-wide law enforcement is completely unequipped and under staffed to fight the wave of cyber crime and hostile invasion by various governments, it is proposed that cyber defense be privatized as follows:
HM Government must rescind the UK signature on the Paris Declaration of 1856 that outlawed privateering (which I assume could be applied to cyber privateering, too).
HM Government would license and bond CYBER PRIVATEERS who would loot criminal enterprises and the treasuries of rogue governments, and split the proceeds 50-50 with the UK Treasury.
The CYBER PRIVATEERS would be bound by "The Cyber Privateer Code" of conduct outlined at www.CyberPrivateer.com.
A legal justification under international law can be found at: http://www.themorgandoctrine.com/2011/01/my-legal-justification-for-cyber.html
