By now, if you haven't heard about the big Sony hack, you must be living under a rock or in North Korea (which was thought to have been involved)!
Sony Pictures Entertainment has finally lawyered up and sent a letter to news organizations (from blogs, all the way up to The New York Times) warning them against using any "stolen information" revealed by hackers.
The letter demands any documents downloaded should be avoided and destroyed.
Their lawyer, David Boies, wrote:
"[The studio] does not consent to your possession, review, copying, dissemination, publication, uploading, downloading or making any use [of the information].
If you don't comply with this request will have no choice but to hold you responsible for any damage or loss arising from such use or dissemination by you."
A flood of emails, personal info, and even medical info has come out, and the worst part is the hacking breach and data dump seem to have only just begun.

The hackers have promised to release even more information by Christmas.
This is a serious breach of personal info and that's totally not cool, and it seems to be all because Sony is releasing a movie called The Interview, about assassinating Kim Jong-Un.
We really wish this would all just stop already!
