Sony Pictures Entertainment, reeling from hacker attacks, told news organizations Sunday that they may be held liable for damages if they publish the contents of its hacked e-mails and files.
The warning, which was sent to publishers in a three-page letter from Sony's lawyer David Boies and published by tech news site Re/code, said leaked e-mails, documents and other files amount to "stolen information" and that Sony "does not consent to your possession, review, copying, dissemination, publication, uploading, downloading, or making any use of the Stolen Information."
"If you do not comply with this request, and the Stolen Information is used or disseminated by you in any manner, SPE will no choice but to hold you responsible for any damage or loss arising from such use," wrote Boies, the high-profile attorney who has represented Al Gore and financier Hank Greenberg.

I don't have any sympathy for them.
They are adults and should realize that anything that you type in the digital realm has the real possibility of being seen by people that were not intended recipients.

You are right of course, but the problem I have is it should not be this way in the first place? Sending those emails was dumb I agree.
However, we should be able to be secure in our privacy with private emails to anyone from anyplace. We are not because the government seems to be above the law in their snooping and because of the criminals who engage in hacking.
