Sony has inadvertently found itself funding FreeAnons
, after band Atari Teenage Riot agreed to one of its tracks being used in a PS Vita
commercial but donated the fee to the Anonymous legal support group. Alex Empire of Atari Teenage Riot
has some history with Sony - the company used a track of his without permission back in 1999 in a Handycam commercial - and so couldn't resist suggesting track Black Flags
when the Japanese company came looking for music for its new Vita advertising campaign. The song contains multiple references to Anonymous
and has been used in several Occupy Wall Street (OWS) promotional videos.
