Brazilian author  Paulo Coelho poses for a photographer  during an interview with The Associate Press, at his apartment, in Geneva, Switzerland, Friday, Dec. 19, 2014. Coelho says the Sony hack threatens us all if society doesn't enforce important values against anonymous terrorists. The best-selling author says he was prepared to make himself an example — even if it meant inviting criticism and threats — if Sony Pictures had taken him up on his $100,000 offer for the rights to its cancelled film.

In this Dec. 9, 2014 photo provided by Karleigh Vroman, Hayden and Maureen Mauk, their son Finnegan, center, and daughter Lucy pose with their newly-adopted St. Bernard Frankie, left, and their two other rescue dogs, after seeing "Telethon Dogs" presented by Queen Latifah over the two-hour Thanksgiving night telecast, at their home in Torrance, Calif. Producers say more than 4,400 people filed adoption papers for homeless dogs during what was billed as the first all-star dog adoption telethon. Director Michael Levitt says it would be huge if only half of the applications result in adoptions. Levitt also says he thinks anyone who watched the show would strongly consider a rescue next time they get a dog. Seventy dogs from rescues across the country were featured on the two-hour Thanksgiving night telecast — a show the producer hopes becomes a fixture in the future. More than 4 million people tuned in to the show, which was co-hosted by actresses Hilary Swank and Jane Lynch, and aired on donated time from the Fox Network.(AP Photo/Karleigh Vroman)

This photo provided by Columbia Pictures - Sony shows, from left, Diana Bang, as Sook, Seth Rogen, as Aaron, and James Franco, as Dave, in Columbia Pictures' "The Interview." When a group claiming credit for the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment threated violence against theaters showing “The Interview” earlier this week, the fate of the movie was all but sealed. Even though law enforcement didn’t deem the threats of violence credible, theater owners and Sony undoubtedly considered the 2012 massacre of a dozen people in a Colorado movie theater. That attack came without warning, and there was no precedent for such mass violence against a U.S. movie audience. (AP Photo/Columbia Pictures - Sony, Ed Araquel)
