iCopyright Expands to Canada and United Kingdom

Partnerships Formed With International Reprint Companies

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2006 -- iCopyright announced today that its award-winning suite of web-based content licensing services will soon be available to Canadian and European publishers through reprint companies located there. In Canada iCopyright will be represented by Tirage Reprints of Winnipeg, Manitoba (http://www.tiragereprints.ca/) and in the UK by London's Media Revenue Services d/b/a Reprint & Licensing Centre (http://www.rl-centre.com/).

"We are very excited to be partnering with iCopyright to bring their services to the publishing industry in Canada," said Justin Schiele, Vice President of Tirage Reprints. "iCopyright is a perfect fit with our reprint business. We recently met with a number of leading newspaper and magazine publishers in Canada and received an enthusiastic response. We will be announcing shortly contracts with publishers who have agreed to use iCopyright and our reprint services."

"Partnering with iCopyright is a natural extension of our business," said Tom Hickman, CEO of Media Revenue Services, who currently provides proactive reprints sales to publishers, including the majority of the UK's national newspapers and magazine groups such as Emap. "iCopyright will allow our clients to monetize their online content, analyze reader behavior patterns and protect copyrighted material. Everyone who has seen iCopyright agrees that it will be an enhancement to their web-based publications. We have already received commitments from a number of publishers who will soon deploy iCopyright alongside of our traditional reprint services."

"The nature of digital content demands a world-wide copyright preservation, monitoring and licensing solution," said Mike O'Donnell, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of iCopyright. "Content on the Internet can not be controlled by borders or legislated by national laws. What is needed is a copyright system that works for all content, in all countries and all languages, for both publishers and users. iCopyright's partnership with Tirage Reprints and Media Revenue Services is a step towards that vision."
