Ensure you address the role each of these parties (and other relevant parties beyond these four) play in the world of cybersecurity. What is the role of indemnification and who should receive it from the US Government through new statute? Support your position with evidence from the required readings and be sure to cite diligently. Be sure to have an extensive discussion of the background for this topic wherein you discuss liability and its forms, provide definitions of ISP, software producer, end user, operating system developed, etc., and discuss previous academic papers that address the malicious traffic liability issue. Base your assignment of liability on the effects and consequences of externalities. Describe real-world examples that help support your position.
