Rumor: Sony's Director of Information Security at SOE is a Pirate?


Sponsored Links
265w ago - SONY is always whining about piracy and how evil pirates are. But are they better themselves? Not really!

While I browsed the web lately, I read a bit about Bryan S. Blank, the Director of Information Security at SONY Online Entertainment.

Getting a bit more interested I found his private homepage (asdfg.org).

By random searching for interesting links I explored the directory "/uploads/" which contains a lot of illegal hosted, copyrighted music.

So, who are the pirates? We are? You are? Funny to see that SONY's bosses are only normal humans with a bit of normal piracy thoughts as well.

all security guys were pirates and if not, they were into piracy, they are all hypocrites.

True indeed, if that is all "homebrew" (non-commercial) music then it shouldn't be an issue.

However, according to the contents in the "incoming.rar" I see mp3's from: Clipse - Til The Casket Drops which appears to be commercial.

hmm hosting remixes of songs isn't illegal if they are not paid-for songs.. which they're not.

Quite ironic... if those "file downloads" are gone in coming hours/days it will mean someone asked him about this I suppose.
