The whistle-blowing portal has republished the sensitive information of Sony Pictures from last 2014 hacking scandal. This made all the documents and emails fully searchable through the search engines, which in its turn, provides easier access to the leaked data. For instance, if you search for the controversial comments from the former Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal, you will get about 5,700 results.
Julian Assange explained that the revealed information shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation, which is at the center of a geopolitical conflict and therefore should belong to the public. However, Sony Pictures accused WikiLeaks of contributing to the damage done by the data leak.
Sony was supported by former senator Chris Dodd, chairman of the MPAA, who also criticized the republication of the leaked data. He also pointed out that WikiLeaks instead violates the privacy of every person involved in the leak. In response, WikiLeaks claimed the leaked files shed light on cooperation between government agencies and entertainment industry.
First, the stolen Sony data were just hard-drive images converted into common compressed file formats. This means that anyone could download it from file-sharing networks, including BitTorrent, but then they had to wade through spreadsheet-like directory trees or run memory-taxing searches. It should be noted that the files also included video ranging from movies to high-resolution promotional spots.
WikiLeaks republication removes the processing burden from users’ computers and makes it easier to look through the data. Some of the data may have never been publicized before due to the difficulty of searching through the original leaks.Posted by: Date:

|Thank god that this is still possible. They are trying like hell to destroy this website by any means necessary. This includes all the false stories planted by the us gov against Julian A. Thank god again that we can look and see the corruption and lies spread by this government in normal day by day life.|
|Saying Assange is totally blameless in his private life may be a bit of a stretch since all are human and the honey trap is not a new smearing campaign but one well used by Russian and Americans alike in the world of spooks, but I digress,All of the Corporations operating for and with the USA government in collection and dissemination of their clients data against their privacy for the self interest of any 3rd party needs to be hung out to dry for the benefit of those concerned ,much like a Government health warning on food stuffs,May contain Nutz,just about sums up corporate America and it`s political lackeys,they may own a Brand or TM it does not mean they have the right to own peoples lives because they are too ignorant to know them for what they are which is where wikileaks bridges the gap.|

|Embolism - you have to keep in mind that taking down the corporate powers that be would just create a vacuum, and the runner ups are much worse yet. You really want Chinese and Russian corporations running everything? In that world you will find your opinions about anything are really, really not going to matter or will just get you silenced. At least we have some power over US corporations and can speak our mind. The West faces the difficult dilemma of enforcing it's own ethics, but not so harshly that they lose the ability to enforce ethics at all. Have to keep your mind open to the bigger picture past your own front yard. Its easier for me, I live on the other side.||
