Description

"Research on software security vulnerabilities is a valuable example of peer production. However, hackers are often threatened with intellectual property lawsuits by companies who want to keep flaws secret. Oliver Day — a senior security researcher for Internet titan Akamai — and Derek Bambauer — a professor of internet law at Brooklyn Law School — propose a liability shield for security research to improve cybersecurity in a world dependent on cloud computing and mobile platforms."
