But I agree entirely though. They should have not caved to these folks. It sets a very bad precedent. And if the reports about NK being involved are true, they are most certainly not the isolated place we think they are.
I think the internet is going to be a wildly more interesting place a year from now.

Sony was put in a no win situation by the terrorist hackers.

So I guess it'll be released direct to Netflix? Maybe released in a torrent?
I say the rest of the world just sticks it to NK and calls their bluff...over a movie.
Hollywood should release the movie for free onto the internet to shove the good ole American Middle finger in lil Kim's face, and announce a sequel.
Besides that, thinking about it can you imagine the can of worms that would open. Every kiddie scripter out there would target all the major distributors in hopes of releasing free movies,music, and games online
