Eh, the finances of public companies can make payments like this harder to hide.

I’m also against ever paying these ransoms, and if they’re going to make a law preventing it I think it should only apply to companies of a certain size (and there are various ways to draw that line.) This would allow small businesses who could be entirely crippled to the point they cease to operate to make their own decisions there (though I still think its an awful idea to comply.)
