Re: Just throwing jet fuel on the fire
One thing that's often overlooked (of course, it has rarely sought to be enforced except when sexting is involved) when it comes to reporting on hacked/leaked info is the issue of intellectual property.

To report on a few facets, for instance, of Amy Pascal's emails would not be an IP violation, but it would potentially be a copyright infringement to copy the emails wholesale (as the hackers have done).

Re: Just throwing jet fuel on the fire
@Joe Stanganelli,... First, I love the disclaimer... ad you do make good points too. Whoever, the biggest problem that I see coming out of this is the ONLY point of view is that Sony is the victim, and because that's all the media and "talking heads" seem to be interested in, which I guess is true when you look at it from the view of "who was hacked". But as I have said in other places, Sony has allot to answer for, they've been hacked at lease three times in 5 years, but that hasn't been discussed, which begs the question, "just how easy is it to gain access to that network?".

In my opinion this event, because it involves North Korea, we should be looking at our privately owned (national) infrastructure of public utilities, water, electric... other power generation and banking. It's been proved many times over that some of these critical systems are open to the Internet, if not vulnerable to a dedicated script-kiddy. We (the US) invented STUXNET... Duqu... Flame and possibly others that we haven't heard about (yet). I don't know about you but there is no way that I can believe that America is the only "Nation State" with this capability, we're just the only ones whose been caught using it.  We're wasting time.
