Sony lawyer: Don’t publish breaches

(AP) A lawyer representing Sony Pictures Entertainment is warning news organizations not to publish details of company files leaked by hackers in one of the largest digital breaches ever against an American company. The Sony materials include studio financial records, employment files and what already has been revealed as salacious gossip by Hollywood executives about President Barack Obama and some of the industry’s big stars and upcoming films. Attorney David Boies, a prominent lawyer hired by the company, demanded Sunday that Sony’s “stolen information” — publicly available on the Internet by the gigabytes — should be returned or destroyed immediately because it contains privileged, private information. Boies said the studio could sue for damages or financial losses related to Sony’s intellectual property or trade secrets.
