"This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation," WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange said in a statement issued on Thursday. "It is newsworthy and at the center of a geo-political conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there."
"The work publicly known from Sony is to produce entertainment," Wikileaks said. "However, the Sony Archives show that behind the scenes this is an influential corporation, with ties to the White House, with an ability to impact laws and policies, and with connections to the US military-industrial complex."
