Steve Heckler, senior veepee of Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. spake thusly:
The industry will take whatever steps it needs to protect itself and
protect its revenue streams. It will not lose that revenue stream, no
Concerning Napster et alia:
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 [ISP]. We
will firewall it at your PC.
These strategies are being aggressively pursued because there is
simply too much at stake.
