Maybe I'm the only one seeing it from this point, but in my fictitious universe (where I am in charge of the company), this is what I would have
Step 1: Leave the full movie in an easily-accessible spot to a hacker (or give to dubious employee on a USB). Or, if feeling more confident, leak the
movie onto a torrent site, and anonymously alert the mass media that there's a copy of the film circulating.
Step 2: Wait for the media hype to begin, or people to begin downloading the film en masse.
Step 3: Make a big public announcement, condemning the fact that the movie was somehow leaked onto the internet for free, and point the finger at the
torrent sites or a mysterious "hacker" group that stole the film (NOTE: Don't use a common name for the hacking group; wouldn't want them to come
Step 4: Sit back and watch - The hackers would go after the torrent site/illegal download sites, people that wanted to see the film would get to
before the sites were hacked, the government (over here) would be happy that hackers are actually getting rid of an illegal download location (for
once), and once it's all said and done, maybe release the film straight to DVD, so that anyone else that missed out on the chaos can see it.
What do you think guys? Crazy plan? Got a better one?
I'm not intending this to be serious (I mean, what are the odds a plan like the above would work?), hence it being in the General Chit Chat
