Sony say that they have no further plans to release the film "The Interview" about a plot to kill North Korea's leader, including as video on-demand. The company's UK arm has commented that there are currently no plans to show the film in the UK.

In this really a limitation on the freedom of expression? Have Sony set a dangerous precedent by giving in to the hackers ? Given the considerable expense of such a film and the consequences of withdrawing it on its financial backers, perhaps it is also a tactical move by Sony, who may intend to release the film at a later date, taking whatever protective measures they can.
