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

    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.

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

    Nah, I think is great news. It's always interesting to see what I suppose you would call high up personnel do in their free time. Director of Information Security providing access to copyrighted material is quite ironic I think. Someone probably isn't going to like this. Nice find SKFU

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

    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.
