Ah, then came the dawn. The dreaded cybersecurity [aka Internet suppression] bill: Obama condemns Sony’s decision to drop film, says US must retaliate and pass cyber bill 19 Dec 2014 Sony Pictures Entertainment should have touched base with the White House before deciding to cancel the release of a controversial movie, United States President Barack Obama said Friday. Weighing in on the major Sony scandal only hours after federal investigators attributed the recent hack to North Korea [when it likely originated in Langley, Virginia], Pres. Obama said the Hollywood studio was wrong to pull “The Interview,” a satirical film containing a plot to kill North Korean Pres. Kim Jong Un that was scheduled to be released on Christmas Day. At the same time, though, Obama said the attack should serve as a wake-up call to Congress and prompt lawmakers in Washington, DC to get serious about implementing cybersecurity legislation in the wake of what is only the latest hack to be endured by a major American company.
