That's why I said this situation is worse. Remember I agreed with your conclusion that it is only going to get worse. I only moved the date of the precedent being set back.

A plausible theory, I'll definitely give you that. And Sony doesn't exactly have a stellar record for keeping their customer's information secure *cough* Network Solutions credit card hack *cough*.
I don't know a lot of the specifications on the different implementations of encryption for the console yet but from what I gather, you'd still have to have some sort of modded hardware to burn the ISO images to a Bluray as the discs themselves are encrypted. The only way I could see around this would be if they released the keys that bind input direction encryption on the USB hubs. I know they already removed the encryption that was locking the ability to write to USB drives for saving videos and screenshots during the 1.65-1.7 Patch, but I'm pretty sure you can't launch a game from an external hard drive so there's got to be some sort of lock on its ability to read from USB for launching games.

at no time will anything ever be proven 100%
So before the proof game starts could you give me specifics as to what you require to rest your case as far as proof goes
also i think it will be wise to start by agreeing on a set definition of proof
or we could just agree to dis agree

Here's my conspiracy theory on why Sony pulled the movie:
The hackers are threatening to release the PS4 encryption keys unless Sony cancels the movie... Imagine if you could download, burn, and play any PS4 game without modifying your console... With everything that the hackers have released so far, it wouldn't surprise me if that data was taken from their servers as well - their security practices seem to be pretty sloppy.

I know everybody is demonizing the N Koreans perhaps that is justified. But let’s put this in context.
What if a Palestinians made a movie with the theme of Hamas assassinating Netanyahu?
Or the other hand what if an Israeli made a movie of Shin Bet or some radical Zionist group that planned the assassination of the leader of the Palestinians.
You see my point.
Also, as for freedom of speech. When Kennedy was shot Sinatra took his assassination movie out of circulation.
Also it’s a crime to even threaten our president.
I don’t think no movie maker would make a movie about Obama like they made against the Korean leader.
You see the hypocrisy here?
As for all the hoopla over hacking
