INTERNET BUSINESS NEWS-(C)1995-2004 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD
Copy protection and digital rights management technology company Macrovision Corp is set to prevent the copying of games delivered over the Internet by Boonty, an online games distributor.
Under the terms of the agreement Macrovision will supply its universal licensing solution to Boonty so that games that are distributed via web sites such as Yahoo!, T-Online, Tiscali, Wanadoo and Virgin are safe from being copied illegally. The technology from Macrovision also manages subscriptions or rentals of software and lets the software owner control how and when games can be unlocked.
The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
