Sony hiring for new anti-piracy program

Better late than never?

Sony is looking to bolster its defences against hackers by putting together a new anti-piracy team, recent job listings suggest.

The posts, advertised on SCEA's recruitment site and spotted by Gamasutra, call for a senior corporate counsel and senior paralegal to aid in "developing and implementing an anti-piracy program".

The former will need to display "Deep knowledge of trademark and copyright law" and "knowledge of online investigative practices, online databases, anti-piracy and DMCA tracker products and services".

The listing stated that "the program to be developed will require a strong strategic online component" and will take input from SCEA's marketing, product development and business development departments.

This of course comes in the wake of the widely-publicised Geohot hack earlier this year which saw the PlayStation 3's internal security ripped wide open. Sony is currently embroiled in legal action against the alleged perpetrators.
