First response to North Korea Sony hack should be US Gov pay Sony to release the movie on the web. US need to make a statement. Give Sony 90 mil to release it on the Web while they retain rights to also sell if on DVD pay per view etc...get that movie out here ASAP as a slap in face to Hackers/North Korea.

We will spend more than that trying to counter the hack.

I disagree. I posted in another thread that the U.S. should hack NK's government TV and play Team America World Police on continuous loop.

The people of the United States shouldn't have to pay for a stoner comedy about assassination when:
1. Pot is illegal federally
2. Assassinations are illegal.

The US government should not be giving money to any company that makes as much money as SONY.

The threat to movie theaters was one thing.

Everything else is on Sony and Paramount. They need to put on their big boy pants. Or is what is in those files that damning that it would instantly bankrupt Sony Pictures?

We don't pay for anything the Government does. They print more or just add more digits to some computer counter somewhere. They just tax you to keep up the ruse that our system is based on some principle. Guess what, its not. The US debt is just a number in a computer somewhere. The debt system is simply a way to manage inflation. You know your grandpa paid a nickle for a loaf of bread and your grandchildren will pay a $100 but they will also make $200 hour.

The point however is to show hackers they can't win with blackmail. What its costing you is your soul.

How much do they give Wal-Mart? Oil companies? Banks?
And Sony is broke.

But I agree they shouldn't be given them money.

I don't think Obama quite said that.

I guess the humor in that idea sailed right on past you.

I don't think the government needs to do anything for Sony at all. But if they did, I would vote for my idea. But that's a Paramount flick, so it still wouldn't do anything for Sony.

Lighten up

What does this post have to do with what Obama said. This is purely my opinion. US can print 100 mil in 5 min. Next they will hack Vatican and threaten the Pope to release all the pedophile priest info and blackmail Pope to kiss Kim's little ass.

The point is we need to show NK and any other blackmailers that we wont tolerate this.

Lol that would be hilarious, might as well only show "The Interview" on their TV's and then arrest them for pirating the movie. Only thing is that NK would just shut down the electrical grid, blame it on the US, and start a war. If piracy is such a crime, why doesn't SONY take action against N. Korea for knowingly pirating the movie and stealing it?

Paying a rich corporation, no. They can live with the mess they made.

Who really cares about Sony entertainment except some gamers.

You guys are failing to see the greater implications of this. Ok say you did something online your wife might divorce you over, now say North Korea blackmails you and makes you pay them to save your marriage. Wouldn't you expect your country to do something to stop that extortion?

No... Why does the government care about my own personal business?

I expect to take care of my own #. I expect the same from Sony.

My computer and my data is mine to keep and take care of.. Don't need anymore government intrusion and hopefully we can have less somehow some way in the future.


Get it?

That's your soul.

Obama and his administration is the government, he has just asked that Sony should talk to him..he didn't mention money though. Do you want to pay for a pig in a poke? I don't think so, I guess Obama would not want that either. As for blackmail..e-mails were published. As for threats of attack, they have been given.
I'm not sure how the Vatican figures, but if they, (NK) did hack Sony along with the e-mails, why stop there? just carry on.

The only thing that should happen is that Christmas morning, I should be able to fire up my PS4, PS3, Vita, whatever Sony internet enabled device and find a shiny new copy of the movie sitting there on the devices' hard drive waiting for me to watch it for free...

But that would be no different than North Korea hacking Sony. Only worse because it would be state to state. Wasn't Stuxnet enough? To be fair, we hit them first...
not that I like North Korea or anything...but the US has done much worse and the problem of a movie studio being hacked isn't our business. The threat to theaters is and should be addressed.

Let me get this straight.

Sony backs Down...or so the story goes.

US tax payers should pay the Govt. to pay Sony (corporation) for the privilege of going to a theater to pay more money to view a potentially propaganda piece.

Can you see how screwed up this plan really is?

Really?

Peace
