    They are probably trying to protect the sites that stream it from foreign hacking. It was foreign hacking, after all, that started the whole issue.

    They are basically forcing overseas people to use VPNs or pirate the movie.. and instead they could have earned a pretty sum if they had just bothered to release it world wide.. utter fail.

    No worries I will get this movie and I was going to actually for the first time in over a decade buy a movie just to stick it to North Korea.. but **** that.

After that, they should heavily invest in some better security. Once that is done, it's up for them to come up with a policy for any similar events in the future. This caught everyone by surprise and I think what Sony is doing is fine for now (because of how unprepared everyone was) but simply unacceptable in the future.

    What I find more troubling is Obama commenting on this, and everyone and their mama telling Sony that they should release the movie. Sony hesitated because it simply hadn't encountered anything like this before. Any decision it took after that is entirely its own to make. It wouldn't be the first company that decides to pull out of a deal/agreement because of security concerns and the possible damage to its image.

    For jingoists who don't have anything to lose, Sony releasing it allows them to put up their 'Murica game. However what if it were to be released and god forbid an actual attack occurred? Sony would spend years getting over the terrible publicity such incidents make. FFS, the first thing DKR's production company did was cancel the openings in about 4-5 different countries the minute the news of the Aurora shooting came out.
    That is exactly why we cannot rely on the automatic hero thing. If one of them is destroyed in public, the next will be hard to find and coercion will be free to roam wild.

    What would be interesting is how Obama's pressure or let us call it moral suasion would be interpreted. Would the government stand by Sony or not?

    Also, I would say that we all expected somethng along these lines. We have seen the hacker's leaks of telephone calls and threats by dictators before. We have talker about al sorts of attacks via the internet on companies and governments for years. If we were taken by surprise, were unprepared, some people should lose their jobs and some should go to jail.
