Terrorist hunting: Dear Sony Entertainment, Part II

In my January 11th post on how to recruit cyber privateers through online gaming, I did not consider the obvious flip side of the coin: Terrorists (cyber and otherwise) can use the peer-to-peer voice and message capabilities of existing online games to communicate under the radar of DHS, the CIA, the NSA, and the FBI. Today's Computerworld story goes into "the dark side" in some detail. Which leads me to again make the recommendation to Sony Entertainment that you might want to ever-so-slightly change your online user agreements to permit mining of terrorist-like gaming/messaging behavior. And then you can award some cyber-crime/terrorist bounty hunters with get-out-of-jail-free cards so they can do some serious skulking. What think ye?

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
