It was not the intent of the author to have this speech leveraged for corporate gain. In fact, such use of it is antithetical to the man's reason for living and the principles for which he died. If Sony does not voluntarily release this specious claim, I will leverage every bully pulpit I can to initiate a boycott of all of Sony's products, from movies to music to books to electronics and every other holding they control.

It's hard to me to understand how can this be copyrighted by any company or by any person in the world but the author of this speech and perhaps his descendants.

Thanks for adding your voice.
