REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT ON SECURING CYBER INFRASTRUCTURE
May 29, 2009

“We will begin a national campaign to promote cybersecurity awareness and digital literacy from our boardrooms to our classrooms, and to build a digital workforce for the 21st century. And that's why we're making a new commitment to education in math and science, and historic investments in science and research and development. Because it's not enough for our children and students to master today's technologies -- social networking and e-mailing and texting and blogging -- we need them to pioneer the technologies that will allow us to work effectively through these new media and allow us to prosper in the future. “

"It is encouraging to see President Obama and his advisers recognize the seriousness of technology security in all aspects of our lives," said USA Video (OTCBB: USVO) (CDNX: US.V) (Berlin: USF.BE) (Frankfurt: USF.F), President and CEO, Edwin Molina. "Our company's evolving technology offers enforcement solutions that catch criminals who steal and pirate multiple forms of proprietary content, and more and more owners and authorities are realizing that our enforcement strategy works much better than the prevention strategies they have been trying for years."For more than a year USA Video has been providing digital watermarking services to the Hollywood film studio of one of the world's leading media content companies, and is poised to expand its services for content protection and forensic tracking to the education and government sectors.
