In its ongoing war against online piracy, the MPAA is currently recruiting new soldiers. One of the open positions that caught our eye recently is that of an “Internet Analyst,” tasked with manipulating media files and monitoring social networks, communities and forums. For those still in school the MPAA also has a job opening for an unpaid summer intern to assist with various “content protection” projects.The position of Internet Analyst is a crucial one in the MPAA organization. The person hired for the job will work under the supervision of Senior Vice President Content Protection Internet Marc Miller, and will be tasked with spotting and analyzing the latest piracy trends.This also includes a bit of online spying on social media and other online communities. One of the key responsibilities in this position, according to the job offering, is to “monitor and report on Internet based social networks, communities and forums.”In addition the new recruit will have to research how much harm piracy is doing to the movie industry. Or as the job offer puts it, to “analyze how and at what rate illegal online delivery systems cannibalize legitimate business models.”Finally, it is worth noting that the position also requires a particular skill set. Aside from browsing the Internet the analyst should also be able to “manipulate online media files,” whatever that may entail.
