SANTA CLARA, CA – June 1, 2005 – Atypon Systems, the leading provider of e-publishing software and services, introduced a new online subscription module today. This module added to Atypon's Literatum and Extenza e-publishing platforms allows publishers to offer their online users multiple ways of purchasing content under various licensing models. Building on extensive e-commerce experience, Atypon's new module gives publishers a range of options on how to sell or renew access to all or subsets of their content.
"Online usage continues to grow rapidly and users are becoming more and more familiar with using the Internet to purchase," said Georgios Papadopoulos, CEO of Atypon. "Our publishers will be ahead of the curve in being able to offer their users more choices in purchasing subsets of content or simply renewing their online or print subscription."

"We are very excited about our new e-commerce capabilities. Our readers are experienced Internet users who appreciate the ability to use the Internet for all transactions and to gain instant access to content," said Tom Mulak, Vice President of Mary Ann Liebert Publishers.
