Sony wants Twitter to suspend account of user who posted leaked documents

John Ribeiro | Jan. 2, 2015
Confidential information from Sony was leaked after a hack in late November.

"SPE will have no choice but to hold Twitter responsible for any damage or loss arising from such use or dissemination by Twitter, including any damages or loss to SPE or others, and including, but not limited to, any loss of value of intellectual property and trade secrets resulting from Twitter's actions," Boies wrote.

Twitter spokesman Jim Prosser said the company had received the letter on Monday afternoon, but did not comment on the letter or indicate whether it planned to suspend the account.

Boies had previously written to some news outlets to warn them that they weren't allowed to use stolen information, threatening them with possible responsibility for damages incurred by Sony in connection with the reports.
