Sony loses legal battle at last. If you’re still mad over the network hacking debacle of April 2011 and Sony’s “We’re sorry” package wasn’t good enough for you then you’ll be pleased to now that the saga continues. In Britain they have just lost their legal battle against The Information Commissioner’s Office who has ruled that if Sony had employed more recent software then the hacking could have been prevented. Saving Sony £100 million and stopping hackers obtaining names, addresses, emails and credit card details.
The 250 thousand pound fine is naturally a drop in the ocean to Sony who is still a wholesale printer for money, but still a sting to their reputation. Naturally they are going to appeal.
