Vice’s tech site, Motherboard reports that it has in its possession a letter from Sony lawyer, David Boies sent to Twitter’s general counsel Vijaya Gadde. In it, Sony says it will hold Twitter responsible any loss or damage arising from tweets from accounts Twitter hasn’t banned.
Twitter user Val Broeksmit also received a letter threatening legal action from Sony. Broeksmit has posted screengrabs of leaked Sony emails from his Twitter account.
How Sony will determine how an individual’s tweet has caused loss or damage is yet to be seen. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
