If the Sony hackers are North Korean, good luck prosecuting


If the hackers who scared Sony Pictures into scrapping “The Interview” are North Korean, the United States and Japan might as well give up trying to prosecute them.

Online crime has far outpaced the international laws meant to regulate it, and it would be near impossible for the U.S. or Japan (where Sony is based) to extradite online criminals from a country with which they have little relationship, according to cyberlaw experts. If neither government can get the hackers into a courtroom, then their options are limited.
