Sony Sued For Not Protecting Leaked Movie From Pirates

Sony is being sued for failing to meet contractual obligations which required the company to protect a movie (one of many) from being pirated. This all stems from the infamous Sony hack at the end of 2014.

In 2014, Sony was subjected to a massive cyberattack which resulted in the leak of huge quantities of data. The trove contained several movies, all of which appeared online for anyone to download for free. Now the owner of one of the titles is suing Sony, claiming that company failed in its obligation to protect the movie from Internet pirates.
