Worlds Inc. Signs Second Pact With Freeserve

Worlds Inc. signed its second definitive agreement within a 30-day period, this one to become the official and exclusive 2D, or HTML, Internet chat content provider on the UK's Freeserve ISP service.

The first agreement announced on June 16 called for Worlds to be the official 3D Internet broadband chat content provider on Freeserve, including placement of Worlds 3D Internet technology and 3D broadband content on millions of new Freeserve ISP access CDs.

Freeserve plc, a subsidiary of Dixons Group plc, the UK's largest brick and mortar electronics retailer, has generated over 1.2 million active user accounts in 10 months.

Both agreements with Freeserve provide for advertising revenue sharing between Freeserve and Worlds while the Worlds/Freeserve 3D broadband agreement also provides for an e-commerce link on Freeserve's Shopping Channel Page back to WorldsStore.com which sells the merchandise of a number of recording artists, including Elton John, Sting, U2, Shania Twain, and David Bowie, among others.

"Freeserve's overall decision to work with Worlds highly dedicated team of software developers and marketeer's is, I believe, a reflection of Worlds cutting edge technology and content," said Steven G. Chrust, chairman of Worlds.

The Freeserve 2D Chat content pages will contain a prominent mention in the upper right hand corner noting that Freeserve Chat is managed by Worlds.com.

Worlds Inc. primarily creates, markets, and operates three-dimensional interactive, multimedia, virtual environments for the Internet, utilizing proprietary technology. Worlds' Internet software and broadband content is delivered and installed via broadband interactive cable networks or embedded on traditional audio CDs, and forms the basis for multi-user chat, e-commerce and advertising forums.
