After Hans Gruber's gang seizes control of Nakatomi Plaza in Die Hard, Hans and several henchmen accompany Joseph Takagi to his office and this is said:
Hans Gruber: Theo has some questions for you. Sort of 'fill in the blanks' questions.
Joseph Takagi: (sees computer screen with log-in) I don't have that code! You broke in here to access our computer? Any information you could get, when they wake up in the morning, they'll change it. You won't be able to blackmail our executives..
The only thing I can conclude from that is that Nakatomi is involved in illegal activities.
It seems strange given that just before this, while Takagi still thinks the group are terrorists, Hans is admiring a scale model of a bridge in a project in Indonesia, Takagi protests that they are doing it for the good of the people - which Hans readily accepts.
Admittedly Holly's associate is caught red handed (or more accurately 'white nosed') while snorting some cocaine in her office, but I don't see why Nakatomi would be putting that type of information into their computer.
Was Nakatomi corp. involved in illegal activity, or is there some other explanation I might have missed that accounts for the 'blackmail' comment?
