iCopyright Appoints Andrew Elston CEO

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - February 18, 2010) - iCopyright announced today that Andrew Elston has been appointed CEO of the company. Elston, a 20-year information industry veteran, has been with iCopyright for four years and most recently served as Vice President of Publisher Services. Elston replaces iCopyright founder Mike O'Donnell, who will be working independently on new strategic initiatives. O'Donnell will continue to serve on the company's board of directors.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to take iCopyright to the next level," said Elston. "iCopyright's licensing service has come a long way since I first started using it as a publishing customer in 2001 at Primedia. The role it plays in the digital content industry has become more important than ever. I am inheriting the best technology on the market and a world-class team of developers. My first priorities will be expanding sales and working with our publisher clients to get the technology more broadly deployed."

O'Donnell said "After more than a decade of building and evangelizing the iCopyright platform, I am looking forward to taking a break from the day-to-day duties of running a company to focus on strategic initiatives. The next decade will bring even more dramatic changes to the digital content industry than the previous decade. I want to explore the opportunities those changes will bring, especially as they relate to new applications for the iCopyright technology and developing new technologies."
