THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER | Can Sony Get Around the First Amendment to Sue the Media over the Hack? | December 15, 2014 | Clinical Fellow Andy Sellars spoke with Eriq Gardner, author of The Hollywood Reporter’s column, “Hollywood, Esq,” on the viability of the threatening letter sent by Sony Pictures to news outlets publishing information gleaned from hacks into their system. Citing the Supreme Court case Bartinicki v. Vopper and the protections it affords the media, Andy cautioned that the letter may only convince journalists to keep digging. The one area where the lines get blurry is around “trade secrets,” but what from the leaks falls into that category is hard to say.
