Forms pact with Activated Content Corp.

Audible Magic is adding watermark filtering to its CopySense peer-to-peer filtering solution via an alliance with Bellevue Wa.-based with Activated Content Corp.

The deal allows Audible Magic not only the ability to screen its own audio fingerprinted titles in a P2P environment, but also Activated Content watermarked audio and video files.

Says Audible Magic CEO Vance Ikezoye, "Recognizing the trend in watermarking pre-release music and motion pictures we saw an opportunity to further expand the capabilities of our CopySense technology as an effective anti-piracy tool."
