Sony exec: “We will bury you”

This is slightly old news (from August 17), but it bears repeating. Steve Heckler, a VP with Sony Pictures Entertainment, Inc., speaking informally to a small group audience members after a speech at a conference at Cal State Long Beach, had this to say about Napster:

“Sony is going to take aggressive steps to stop this. We will develop technology that transcends the individual user. We will firewall Napster at source — we will block it at your cable company, we will block it at your phone company, we will block it at your [Internet-service provider]. We will firewall it at your PC.”

Fightin’ words.
