JUPITERMEDIA'S JUPITERIMAGES DIVISION ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF IMAGE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE FOR JAPANESE MARKETPLACE(New York, NY - March 24, 2006) - Jupitermedia Corporation (Nasdaq: JUPM) today announced the launch of Photostock.jp (www.photostock.jp), a Japanese language version of its Photos.com (www.photos.com) subscription service. Operated by a team in Japan, Photostock.jp is modeled after Photos.com and was specifically built for the Japanese marketplace. In addition to the global English language versions (including specific sites serving the U.K. and Australia), Photostock.jp joins a growing list of local-language versions of Photos.com including sites in German (www.photos.com/de), French (www.photo.com/fr) and Spanish (www.photos.com/es).
"We are excited to bring the highly successful Photos.com model to the Japanese market with the launch of Photostock.jp," stated Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation. "While the English language version of Photos.com is a global business with many international subscribers, delivering versions in local languages specifically tailored to the individual marketplaces will extend our global reach and customer base. To accelerate growth and acceptance, it is important to create more user-friendly environments for design and creative professionals so that they can search for images in their language of choice and pay in their local currency," added Meckler.
