Report: Sony US hiring anti-piracy legal experts

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

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.
