On the one hand we have the Sony content business whose management seems to want to control consumption to make breach of copyright by consumers difficult, ( to the extent of playing fast and loose with the law as with the Sony CD rootkit on one occasion). On the other hand we have the Sony consumer electronics business which is attempting to transform content from one format to another better and more flexibly than any competitors products so that consumers are restricted less than by any competitor's products.
This creates a conflict of interest, in which one side of the business is determined that the other side should fail. The way Sony treated George Hotz and the backlash which resulted didn't win Sony any new friends but it resulted in many previous customers ceasing to purchase Sony products.
Best for the 2 divisions to agree an amicable split and for these to become 2 separately managed concerns, a bit like the way there is no longer any connection between Rolls Royce aero engines and Rolls Royce cars. These 2 divisions are likely to be worth much more apart than trying to fight an internal war amongst themselves together in name only.
