The Interview. Where will Sony’s hack end?
If you have not heard, Sony’s release of The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco in a story about the assassination of Kim Jong Un, has been cancelled with no further plans for release. This was done because of threats of violence from the GOP, Guardians of Peace. The F.B.I. believes this group has ties to North Korea.
Since the movie was pulled there have been further demands that all of the evidence that the film ever existed be erased, except the memories of all of us that have seen the promos and posters I suppose. But then it seems that they may have a better idea, as recent communications between Sony and the GOP show that now the film can be released with serious edits.
I don’t know about everyone else but I feel that this cyber-warfare is more like cyber-blackmail. If the GOP is allowed to get these demands met they are taking away the right of the First Amendment. Any thoughts?
