NYTimes Passion + Google Zombies = Cyber Privateers

Today's New York Times story "Cybersecurity at risk" (see here) passionately suggests we need a solution. Unfortunately, their ignorance of the real issue makes their support of current legislation laughable. However, there is a synthesis of ideas that they should consider: Google's "Kill Zombies and Get a Job" program (see article here). Aren't cyber intruders the metaphorical equivalent of honest-to-goodness real-life zombies? So with due respect to the well-meaning but flatulently ignorant editors at the New York Times, licensed and bonded cyber privateers (Zombiekillers, if you will) really turn the financial equation on its head and make for a sustainable, scalable, damn near foolproof mechanism. Come on Times! Playing defense only (holding hands and singing Kumbaya) while we wait for a bunch of bureaucrats to reach consensus is NOT a solution that stands the remotest chance of success.

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?
