    Well, "major media conglomerates" aren't in the business of homeland security. But they are in the business of protecting their bottom line and to the extent that dead movie goers in the aisles at theaters showing their film would be a real drag on their bottom line, the safety of ordinary people who happen to be their customers is a big deal and they give a big rat's ass about that.

    Nope--neither the studios nor theaters have any liability for someone coming in and massacring theater goers, unless (possibly if) a prior threat was already called in from an external source.

    As an example, Warner Bros. didn't lose a dime during the Aurora 2012 massacre.

    Anyone could be a suspect. Allegations made by corporations (i. e. for PR purposes) are not credible statements, and even otherwise, there's no way sony could know the identity of the hackers.
    Its the FBI saying that its likely that the hackers are NORK's.

    FYI-There are no specific regulations. Cautious people in the adult business have to keep track of who/what gets targeted for arrest and what gets successfully prosecuted. It varies and changes by region and over time. For example interracial sex tended to get prosecuted in the southeast.

    The only reason Sony pulled it was because some dumb hollywood liberal or liberals said far more "racially insensitive" things. You had that lady apologizing in advance.

    Legally, they don't have any liability, but PR is concerned, they would be held directly responsible, in the court of public opinion. Not to mention the responsibility they have to their employees.

    Can you name any mainstream Hollywood movies with a pro-communist message?

    This is different than Aurora 2012 however, because there's this ambiguous "broad" threat hovering around out there.

    While it's not a direct call to a specific theater, it's also not a seemingly out of no where attack that a theater had little chance of even having a tiny guess that it could've happened

    the excuse that theaters were pulling it is smoke screen for sony to try to save face under threat of something truly embarrassing and revealing about the hollywood culture.


    I hope the n. koreans release it anyway. lol
