In the wake of PlayStation 3 piracy battles, recent job postings on Sony Computer Entertainment America's website show that the company is hiring key staff to develop and implement an anti-piracy program.
SCEA is hiring a senior corporate counsel and senior paralegal for a new "anti-piracy and brand protection program," the job postings stated.
The anti-piracy staff would collaborate with Sony Computer Entertainment companies, Sony Corporation and industry trade body the Entertainment Software Association on anti-piracy issues.
The senior corporate counsel for anti-piracy at SCEA is to have "deep knowledge" of trademark and copyright law and litigation. Responsibilities include establishing a "process for developing [an] anti-piracy program."
"The program to be developed will require a strong strategic online component" that will take input from marketing and product development branches within SCEA, the description added.
The job postings come while Sony is embroiled in a case against PlayStation 3 hackers that the company accused of breaking through "a critical level of the PS3 System" protection measures in December, and distributing the means for others to do so.
In January, a U.S. District Court judge granted Sony a temporary restraining order against hacker George "Geohot" Hotz. The court said Sony submitted substantial evidence to show that Hotz violated the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Hotz maintains that his "jailbreak" is not meant to open the door for piracy on the console, although the hack does allow users to use unlicensed software on the console.
Last week, Sony vowed to ban pirates from PlayStation Network following early piracy of internally-developed first-person shooter, Killzone 3.
