Sony Threatens Legal Action Against Twitter Over Hack Leaks

/ 5 years ago


In an interesting turn of events, Sony has delivered one of those threatening letters to Twitter. Sony Pictures has asked the social network to delete accounts that have been sharing leaked material, that’s if they don’t want to face legal action.

Motherboard says that it has seen a letter addressed to Twitter’s general counsel Vijaya Gadde from David Boies, the lawyer given the job of helping clear up Sony’s mess. It says essentially the same things that the one delivered to news outlets says, asking people to stop disseminating or publishing “stolen information”.

“SPE does not consent to Twitter’s or any Twitter account holder’s possession, review, copying, dissemination, publication, uploading, downloading, or making any use of the Stolen Information, and to request your cooperation in suspending the Account Holder’s Twitter account and the account of any other user seeking to disseminate the Stolen Information via Twitter”.

Oddly, the same letter has been delivered directly to a Twitter user, namely Val Broeksmit, who has extensively shared portions of the leaked e-mails on his Twitter account.
