Professor Paul Ohm talked about the need for lawyers, prosecutors, and judges who understand the internet and coding. He was a computer programmer and had been a Department of Justice prosecutor of computer crime. He described how prosecutors and defense lawyers handle -- and sometimes mishandle -- technology and computer crime because they may lack a solid understanding of technology and misjudge what is needed. The federal government’s efforts to prosecute rising computer crime is sometimes hindered by its lawyers' lack of understanding of computer networks and code and citizens sometimes are hurt by their own lawyers, who may lack sufficient understanding of technology. close
