SAN ANTONIO -- Internet software developer GlobalSCAPE Inc. announced today that it has re-released CuteMX®, a peer-to-peer application that enables Internet users to manage and share media files and other collaborative content.

GlobalSCAPE is a subsidiary of American TeleSource International Inc. ("ATSI") (AMEX:AI - news).

"We re-released CuteMX to introduce our new filtering technology, which is designed to prevent the sharing of unsecure user-created content, while encouraging unique and original content in secure formats," stated Tim Nicolaou, CEO of GlobalSCAPE Inc.

According to Nicolaou, "CuteMX supports secure distribution by incorporating a proprietary filtering process, which offers protection for copyrighted material in a rich, collaborative environment." CuteMX is currently being tested in a controlled environment with a limited user community that enables the company to gather valuable marketing data in support of a future subscription model.

GlobalSCAPE has met with several major and large independent record companies regarding the uses of CuteMX, although no agreements have been established. "Our strategy is to be a technology partner to those with content already in place," said Nicolaou.

"CuteMX offers outstanding value to media companies, because they can reach millions of potential consumers with common interests through online communities. Our intention is to license the technology to those pursuing super-distribution models."

GlobalSCAPE restricted public access to its CuteMX service in July pending further developments surrounding the preliminary ruling in the Napster case. "We are encouraged by recent movement in the industry toward acceptance of this type of technology," said Sandra Poole-Christal, president and chief operating officer of GlobalSCAPE.

"It is a pivotal time for file sharing technology with the recent BMG and Napster announcement (http://www.globalscape.com/products/cutemx) and Listen.com's bid to acquire assets from Scour Inc., developer of a competitive file sharing application."We intend to take CuteMX into the mainstream," added Poole-Christal.

CuteMX is available for free download at GlobalSCAPE's Web site www.globalscape.com. Product reviews of CuteMX can also be found at this site.

GlobalSCAPE Inc. (www.globalscape.com) is a leader in the development, marketing and support of award-winning Internet-based software including Internet utilities, Web site management tools and peer-to-peer technology targeting both business and consumer markets.
