"...a totalitarian regime seeking to silence dissident speech”
Well I wouldn't call Sony a 'totalitarian regime'.
Sony Pictures Entertainment's legal representatives appear to again have written to media, entreating them not to write about the documents pinched from the company's servers last year. The letter, a purported copy of which can be found here (PDF) makes the argument that WikiLeaks' decision to publish the documents “rewards a …
My favorites include the things relating to Dr Oz - he who has recently faced professional condemnation for pushing quackery in order to improve his audience appeal. Sony's strategy documents shed more light on this - they don't have 'smoking gun' instructing him to lie, but they do record that he was directed to promote more stories about 'health products' because they tend to get higher ratings, and warned that he was running too many weight-loss segments that made his audience feel fat and less likely to watch more.
Tough luck Sony
Nothing to hide, nothing to fear.
However actually having read some of the emails (thanks Wikileaks) they have plenty to hide and much to fear as have the rest of the copyright gangsters. .... Anonymous Coward
The secret that media related systems of administration are trying to hide and fear becoming global general knowledge is how to be effective in stealthily wielding the following weaponry/virtual machinery which drivers the future with leading events.

Something different and immediately available from a vast suite of novel apps ........ and for free too if one is into making colossal fortunes and titanic waves.
Virtualisation and its Pragmatic Application for the Delivery of Future Realities/Epic Media Hosted Tales
If one is not providing the original narrative and drive for servers and systems and media hosting/reporting, is one always in a situation of responding and competing for a leading advantage in a program and projects which are totally alien to one, for one does not have the lucrative insider track and vitally important proprietary intellectual property/internet service provision which supplies one with the ongoing direction and end game goals of programs and projects engineered and drivered by the Virtual Space and Advanced IT Masters monitoring and mentoring leading events/shared thoughts and creative novel ideas.
Do you have an interest in providing lead in such an area of Future Play/Virtual Reality Product Placement delivering remote computer control of what is in actual reality a present completely different from the past which is protected and assured to be fail-safe and secure in a SMART Virtual Machine Environment ...... with Super Stealthy Cloud Defences?
Real Heavy Heavenly Fuel …… for AI and NEUKlearer HyperRadioProACTive IT.
It shows one is retarded by a lack of viable imagination and necessary intelligence to not realise that the future is quite different from the present and the past is a virtual confection for edutainment ...... engagement, enjoyment and enlightenment. I Kid U Not.
David Boise was involved with that case as well.
And in particular
- Boies was retained by the SCO Group, during the SCO-Linux controversies, in their pursuit of alleged infringement of their rights to the Unix intellectual properties.
- Boies was the lead counsel for Oracle Corporation in its lawsuit against Google on the use of Java (programming language) technology in the Android (operating system). The case decided that Google did not infringe on Oracle's patents.
Great track record Sir!
you really must be worth your $1000/hour
You can think about Boies' clients what you want, but when you look at the SCO case, how long he managed to keep IBM and Novell in court with not a shred of evidence, he surely deserved his fees, and he surely is a lawyer that you would prefer on your side.
As mentioned, he also won Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, making a ban on gay marriage in California unconstitutional.
Lawyers are not supposed to make any moral judgements on their clients, they are supposed to fight for their clients' side.
Sony, just give it up! That horse has already left the barn, had babies, and now a herd (as in the entire Internet) is chewing on your malapropisms (technical term for damning emails and documents).
Personally, I think Sony's most appropriate saying would be "Just do evil!"...
