Macrovision is to ship Macrovision FlexNet Publisher, a software licensing system for software suppliers which features flexible pricing and packaging, advanced security and automated lifecycle management.

The software supports licensing models such as utility or grid computing.

FlexNet Publisher is built on the company's FlexNet Universal Licensing Platform and is supported by suppliers such as Intel, InstallShield and Intraware. 

FlexNetP Publisher supports new pricing models, promotion and distribution channels; capture of revenue previously lost to unauthorised or illegal use; reduction of cost of sales through digital distribution; and simplification of licence management by automating re-hosts, upgrades and renewals.

Five modules are included for licensing, utility pricing, promotional licensing, enhanced security and operations. Functions such as user authentication are supported.

Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server database support and new internationalisation features have been added.
