According to Variety report, Sony is not happy with WikiLeaks for compiling and publishing the whole bunch of data. The studio even bashed WikiLeaks in a statement: 

“The cyber-attack on Sony Pictures was a malicious criminal act, and we strongly condemn the indexing of stolen employee and other private and privileged information on WikiLeaks,” a spokeswoman said. “We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks’ assertion that this material belongs in the public domain.”

 In reply, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange justified the action in following words: 

“This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation,” he wrote in a statement. “It is newsworthy and at the centre (sic) of a geopolitical conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there.”

That’s all for now folks.. Stay tuned for more..
