Copernic Upgrades Private Label Program for Desktop Search with Enhanced Advertising Features

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2007) - Copernic Inc., (NASDAQ:CNIC), a leader in Internet search technology and online advertising, announced an upgrade to its private label program. The private label program is a unique way for Internet Service Providers (ISPs), portals, and websites to incorporate Copernic Desktop Search directly into their website so that they can promote their brand, advertise their products and services, and more efficiently position their company on the desktop of their customer's computers.

Eric Bouchard, Vice President of Products for Copernic Inc. commented on the upgrade by saying, "Our new version is now a fully customizable application that provides multiple entry-points for ISPs, portals and IT consultants to leverage their existing web and site search. It also provides embedded links to advertise their own products and services. All of this translates into increased traffic, better customer retention, and increased advertising revenues for our customers."

With the launch of the upgrade, licensees can now better leverage their existing search engine to drive additional advertising revenue. The upgrade is a result of customer requests for additional ways to help support their online advertising initiatives.

The technology is also available for licensing as a Software Developers Kit (SDK) for IT consultants and web developers that want to integrate desktop search into the applications they build for their customers.

- Leverage its presence globally to establish Copernic as a major player in mobile desktop search

- Expand its distribution channels for search/media solutions and software licensing agreements

- Continue its investment in R&D to maintain high standards of innovation and advanced technology.
