Cyber security

Consider the casebook at pp. 141-44 (self-help by hacking back) and note 5 ([sec-ondary liability: making ISP’s liable for criminal acts of users; or making some users liable for their negligence causing harm to others on the network).

Would you say that either one of these (authorizing hack-back, or making persons other than the pirate liable) is a good idea? Can you think of undesired consequences (costs) that might follow? Would the benefits of either of these ideas outweigh the costs?
