WikiLeaks Puts Stolen Sony Documents Online

Whistleblower site WikiLeaks has created an online archive of documents and e-mails late last year at Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) were stolen. It involves more than 30,000 documents and more than 173,000 e-mails to and from more than 2,200 Sony email addresses.

According to WikiLeaks offers online archive a special glimpse into the workings of a large "mystery" multinational. "The work in which Sony is known for creating entertainment, but the Sony Archives show that behind the scenes this is an influential company with ties to the White House and has the ability to influence laws and policies," said the whistleblower site. WikiLeaks also suggests that Sony has ties to the US military-industrial complex.

Julian Assange, editor of WikiLeaks, says that the stolen documents and emails are newsworthy and belong in the public domain. "And WikiLeaks will ensure they stay there." So Sony appears to be a strong lobbyist on issues such as Internet policy, piracy, trade and copyright issues. According to WikiLeaks show the emails show that there is continuously lobbied not only with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), but also directly with politicians.
