Alec Empire, who is not only the frontman of Atari Teenage Riot but also the founder of record label Digital Hardcore, donated money that he earned from the Sony Entertainment conglomerate after licensing the band's song "Black Flags" for the PlayStation Vita commercial to FreeAnons. FreeAnons is part of the pro-hacker Anonymous Solidarity Network, according to Pitchfork.
Free Anons offers financial support to those who are facing legal trouble for alleged work with the Anonymous hacker group.
Sony and Anonymous have been butting heads, so therein lies the irony. Oh, the fact that Empire has his own label also adds a little more irony to the situation.
Team Sony or Team Anonymous?
