Tactics for Dealing with Pirates Ranging from the Sophisticated Knock Off Market to the At -Home User Downloading an Illegal Copy.

PR9.NET November 16, 2007 - POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC - www.DigitalMediaStocks.com, an investor and industry portal for the digital media sector within Investorideas.com, reports on the problem of piracy and the solutions available in technology and enforcement. According to recent reports from the MPAA, film theft costs foreign and domestic distributors, retailers and others $18 billion a year. As the industry pushes for new technology, new legislation and law enforcement, the pirates continue to show no fear as evidenced by the recent flooding of the underground DVD copy of "American Gangster".

The industry recognizes the need for advancement in technology to stop the sophisticated thieves and enforcement to remind the average online user that anyone who sells, acquires, copies or distributes copyrighted materials without permission is in fact a pirate and can be charged accordingly.

USA Video Interactive Corp. (OTCBB: USVO; TSX: US.V; Berlin: USF.BE; Frankfurt: USF.F) has been working closely with Hollywood, with a major studio signing an agreement to use their MediaEscort™ anti-piracy product.

MediaEscort is a software application that resides on customers' video server and automatically and seamlessly embeds SmartMarks (invisible forensic information in every frame of video content) during Internet delivery.

According to the MPAA the demographic profile of the average pirate is male, between the ages of 16 and 24 and lives in an urban area, while college students in the United States, South Korea and Hungary contribute the most to each country's individual loss.

The countries where movie piracy is occurring most prominently are China, Russia, Britain, France, Spain, Brazil, Italy, Poland and Mexico.

US Government is hearing the industry's cry, with the recently introduced Intellectual Property Enforcement Act of 2007.

According to a recent release from the MPAA, Chairman and CEO Dan Glickman said he was pleased to see the introduction of Senators Leahy and Cornyn's "Intellectual Property Enforcement Act of 2007" and encouraged by their commitment to protect America's intellectual content from theft. The MPAA serves as the film industry's primary agency for combating copyright theft.
