Personally I hope that the NSA figures out a way to knock North Korean State TV off the air. In the meantime, though, the United States should exercise eminent domain and buy the movie from Sony as a partial compensation for its loss. Then the Administration should make the movie freely available with dubbing and commentary in as many languages as possible.
I’m disturbed to hear some discussion in the vein of “Oh, it looks like a terrible and offensive movie, so why should we stir up a hornet’s nest by going after the hackers?” Major free speech issues often involve unsavory expression–who cares about whether “The Interview” is up for any Oscars? I don’t expect a principled stance from a corporation, but I do expect one from public officials and citizens.
