The Positive Collateral Damage

We just cannot close the final chapter of our controversial and intriguing story about the Interview, can we? Here is the latest news. In some strange and quite an unorthodox way, it turns out that this was a win-win situation for both parties. How could this be? Well, it is surprisingly simple and obvious.

On the one side, we have the North Korea, which was able to demonstrate both willingness and capacity in order to protect the image if their indisputable leader. In addition, the North Korean cyber capacities have been underestimated and even ridiculed, for quite some time. What happened?

The notorious hacker’s group called the Bureau 121 proved them all wrong. On the other side, Sony Pictures had a unique opportunity to enjoy itself in a free advertising on a global scale. They just could not ask for a better chance to promote their newest film than this annoying hacking trouble, could they?

When you put the things in this way, it seems that actually no one got hurt. However, this is not entirely true. Sony has some questions to ask about its cyber security system. The North Korean regime is in a serious trouble, if a movie can shake its foundations. Maybe, this was a lose-lose situation.
