The war on piracy is far from over. While the content manufacturers have spent the last several years fighting pirates in the legal realm, it appears one of them is now trying to branch out. BGR reports (via TorrentFreak) that Warner Bros is looking for a college-age, tech-savvy Intern spy.

This Intern will receive a salary of around $26,212 (12 month internship) and his duties will focus around going undercover in pirate sites and web groups, and finding info on WB and NBCU content that has been leaked. The Intern will both issue takedown requests and maintain/create bots to scan links for contraband material.

Honestly, this sounds like a pretty cool job. If you can get past the shouts of “Narc!” your friends are likely to make, this could be a hell of a learning experience. A really creepy learning experience that will probably end with dozens of angry pirates attacking your computer. Still though, cool.
