Connected?

First they were hacked.  Then they were threatened.  What does “The Interview” tell us?

Hackers Threaten Sony Film Debut,” Wall Street Journal, December 17, 2014 B1.  Theaters released from obligation to carry movie opening following threats over “The Interview.”

Now the connection between the hacking and the threat seems a bit thin to DHS, it does raise the question, “What if they do this for all Sony films?”

Is this related to information governance, or is this just a limitation on what movies can be marketed? Are some subjects just not advisable?  Is this a risk Sony anticipated when they decided to do the film?  What does this presage for movies on other topics?  Will other theaters bow to the threats?
