Agents, actors and movie studios in Hollywood can certainly learn from Sony's glaring mistakes, understanding that those emails with snide marks about others - which they expect to be confidential - shouldn't be sent, in fear potentially being leaked.

 

"[T]here's going to be consequences for senior people at the studio," said Sharon Waxman, founder and editor-in-chief of TheWrap, speaking to CNBC. "The studio has to go on with its business and it's drip drip drip everyday of an unknown damage hitting the studio - and embarrassment, another piece of information."
