Report: Sony US hiring anti-piracy legal experts

Friday, 25th February 2011 01:35 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Sony has reportedly advertised two positions as part of the development of an anti-piracy program.

Gamasutra spotted the listings on SCE America’s recruitment site; the specific ads have since been removed.

Both listings called for successful applicants to work together with Sony marketing, product and business development in “developing and implementing an anti-piracy program” with “a strong strategic online component”.

The first sought a senior corporate counsel with “deep knowledge of trademark and copyright law” and “knowledge of online investigative practices, online databases, anti-piracy and DMCA tracker products and services”.

A second aimed to recruit a senior paralegal.

    I don’t blame Sony for their hissy-fit, hackers are completely oblivious to the outcome of their actions, but honestly it’d be much worst if they were aware of what it’ll cause, either way it’s their own fault & now they must pay the consequences. Most these hackers are attention seeking egomaniacs anyway, just look @ George Hotz’s rap, pathetic (not the rap itself, it was half decent but it’s the fact that he posted it).

    I think is better to spend that money on a better hackerproof system that allows the capability of running other OS, in order to not give people an excuse for the hacking.

    People will always hack things in order to search out new ways of using existng hardware. See XBMC, jailbroken Iphone, rooted Andriod phones, hacked Kinect aplications.
    You cannot stop technology. The reason it got so out of hand for Sony is thier security was so badly flawed due to not using a key based on a random number. They can’t blame anybody but themselfs for that one.
