You know, there are actually many separate companies named Sony. They all share the same logo and parent company, but they are legally separate. Blaming a person working for one Sony for actions of another Sony, that's just completely off-topic :-)
No, I don't buy this idea. Companies like to pretend they are humans. Well, Ok, but if so then they should be judged by human morals. If they use the same logo and name then that means that they want an association between them. Every large company is slightly schizophrenic (which is easy to understand: there are multiple personalities involved), but if it's to the point where you want to claim that deals of entity A should not affect deals of entity B then it's time to give them different names, logos, etc. Even if they have one parent company. Like FIC, HTC and VIA, for example.
