I am shocked that it has come to this. I am saddened that it is so easy for criminals to suppress a movie because they don't like its politics. Sickening.

Hackers really don't like Sony for some reason.  Or maybe their security is just the worst?

Kind of funny, I posted a bass guitar cover of Fever by Peggy Lee on Youtube and within 30 minutes Sony had it blocked in umpteen countries.  Maybe they should take some of the money they spend monitoring Youtube and spend it on securing their network instead?  Just a thought  Smile

I'm wondering if Sony didn't create all this nonsense themselves to stir up talk over what might have been the box office bomb of the year?  Question

Most of the time it isn't even Sony that's doing that, but Youtube itself without Sony knowing about it.

Yeah I don't know how that works, they just sent me this:

Due to a copyright claim, your YouTube video has been blocked in some countries. This means that your video is still up on YouTube, but people in some countries may not be able to watch it.

Video title: Fever bass cover
Copyrighted song: Fever
Claimed by: SME, UMG, Made In etaly, [Merlin] Phonofile

I don't know how four different outfits can all own the copyright for the same song lol.

No 'Interview' ... on any platform.

Though there is still the possibility that they could sell it to another, smaller distributor.

Huge victory for terrorists and extortionists, it should give them a lot of comfort and confidence. Expect more of this kind of thing.  Bluesad

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
