Many people believe that the U.S. government is fervently using law enforcement and national security resources to protect citizens and companies from cyber threats and intellectual property (IP) theft. This is not true.

David Locke Hall, former assistant U.S. attorney, served for 23 years with the Department of Justice, focusing on the investigation and prosecution of weapons proliferation and technology transfer offenders. In this white paper, Hall talks about the ways in which the DOJ is struggling in pursuing infringers and how private companies must be more aggressive about protecting their own IP.  You'll learn about:

  • U.S. government involvement in software piracy and IP theft
  • Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) prosecution
  • The Criminal Copyright Infringement statute
  • The National Stolen Property Act
  • How lack of action undermines the U.S. economy and security
