 |  December 16, 2014

Sony Pictures Entertainment has reportedly hired antitrust lawyer David Boies to stop media outlets from releasing information obtained through a massive data breach, say reports.

Boies, who served under the Bill Clinton administration, has been enlisted to fight the media’s reporting on the breach, suspected to be the work of North Korean hackers. Various media outlets have received a request from Sony that reads, “We are writing to ensure you that you are aware that [Sony] does not consent to your possession, review copying, dissemination, publication, uploading, downloading or making any use of stolen information, and to request your cooperation in destroying the stolen information.”

The leaks have mainly revealed secret information regarding upcoming scripts and movies, as well as emails sent to and from famous actors.
