Only the priveleged may apply would have to be the caveat otherwise..
Bar the location preference so you can hunt them down and slay them if they mess up - I think I do all of the above (albeit badly and half arsed) for free anyway. But if I officialised it - it would count as a job therefore impacting tax etc zzzzzzzzzzzz.
For people how want a chance to get into the game industry, this is a great opportunity. If they put up more upaid internships(ones I can do) I would take it, as it is a foot in the door.
Me, I am poor. I am in college and I live at home, but I still would take an upaid internship if that means bettering my life in the long run.
