PHOENIX, Nov. 8, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- SunnComm International, Inc. (Pink Sheets:SCMI), maker of MediaMax, America's best selling and most accepted content protection and enhancement technology, announced today that certain reports announcing a joint venture with one of its competitors are absolutely not true.
There are published reports circulating online that state SunnComm is creating a new kind of DRM under a joint venture with a competitor named Macrovision (Nasdaq:MVSN). In part, the story claims:
"From December 1, all iTunes downloads will carry a new kind of Fair Play DRM, a direct negative feedback 'watermark' recognized by Fair Play earbuds and, ultimately, by other audio devices from manufacturers who sign up for the code, which was created under a joint SunnComm and Macrovision venture." The original inaccurate story was written by Jon Newton, editor of P2PNET.net on Saturday, November 5th and can be found at the following online link: http://p2pnet.net/story/6867
At this time SunnComm is not involved, in any way, with Macrovision as it relates to development projects or other discussions with Apple Computer. Executives at MediaMax Technology Corp. (OTCBB:MMXT), the seller of MediaMax, have confirmed that they are not currently working with Macrovision in relation to the development of a new kind of DRM for Apple(r).
