[MD1] PACE Releases USB Floppy Enabler

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, March 10, 1999

PACE Anti-Piracy Releases Standard Floppy Interface for iMac and G3
Systems; New USB Floppy Enabler Available Free from PACE Web Site

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA -- March 10, 1999 -- PACE Anti-Piracy Inc., a leader
in the development of anti-piracy systems for the Macintosh, today released
an innovative solution for software developers whose customers use Apple
Computer's new iMac and G3 floppyless computer systems. PACE's USB Floppy
Enabler is a driver that emulates the floppy drive interface, making
supported third-party external USB floppy drives work with floppy-based
software products.

PACE developed the USB Floppy Enabler in response to the needs of customers
using its InterLok anti-piracy products, a fifth generation tool set for
protecting, distributing and selling software. The USB Floppy Enabler
currently supports Imation's SuperDisk and Newer Technology's uDrive, two
of the leading external USB floppy systems. PACE is working with several
other major USB floppy drive manufacturers to ensure universal
compatibility.

"This driver will not only allow software products and content protected by
InterLok to be authorized with PACE's KeyDiskettes, but it will also enable
other developers' software products to access the new USB drives," said
PACE president and CEO, Allen Cronce. "Our USB Floppy Enabler should be of
interest to anyone with software that makes calls to the floppy drive."

"PACE's InterLok technology has been successfully protecting our Japanese
font products for nearly ten years," said Jim DeLaHunt, Adobe Type Library
Engineering Manager. "The floppyless PowerMac G3 machines presented us with
a unique situation that called for an innovative solution. PACE's
innovation has averted a major re-engineering expense and will help us
provide uninterrupted distribution of our Japanese font products."

The new USB Floppy Enabler is available for download from PACE's web site
free of charge to end users. Software publishers and distributors can
obtain a license for bundling the driver with their own products and for
distributing it from their web sites by contacting PACE Sales. More
information is available about PACE Anti-Piracy, the USB Floppy Enabler,
and PACE's suite of InterLok products at the company's web site:
http://www.paceap.com. PACE Sales may be contacted by phone at
(408)297-7444 x1.
