The Streisand Effect - Trying to Hide Things On The Internet I INTO CONTEXT

3 months ago13K views

One of the biggest news stories this Christmas was the (un-)cancelled release of Sony Pictures' movie "The Interview". In the movie, Seth Rogan and James Franco try to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. After terror threats against movie theatres showing the film, Sony cancelled the release of the movie. This ultimately increased the movies attention and made the later online release the most successful one this year. Actually, there is a name for this kind of phenomenon: the Streisand Effect. In this episode of INTO CONTEXT, Indy explains why it's not always smart to try to hide things on the internet.
