Sony Pictures Entertainment

In 2014, Sony Pictures Entertainment had planned to release the movie The Interview, a satire about a plot to assassinate the president of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. In the weeks before the release of the movie, Sony experienced several cyberattacks believed to be the work of hackers from North Korea working for the government. The movie had received low reviews prior to the cyberattacks, but the publicity that surrounded the cyberattacks led to an increased interest in the movie. After the cyberattacks, President Obama, for the first time, publicly attributed the attacks to the North Korean government as an act of retaliation against Sony and raised the issue of foreign obstruction of the First Amendment rights in the United States. It raised the question of whether the government has a responsibility to protect corporate networks and constitutional rights of citizens against attacks by other nation-states.
