YANGAROO's DMDS Protects the Environment

    Patented DMDS Eliminates Waste and Greenhouse Gases Caused by Delivery of

    TORONTO, Oct. 11 /CNW/ - YANGAROO, Inc., (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF) the
industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, today announced
that its patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS), currently being
used by every major record label, and a growing number of independent labels
and advertisers in North America, protects the environment by eliminating the
waste created by CD's and the greenhouse gas emissions caused by the delivery
of those CD's.
    DMDS delivers broadcast quality audio files securely over the Internet,
replacing the physical distribution of music and advertising on CD's to radio
stations and many other destinations, thereby significantly reducing the need
for CD's. This process saves time, money and prevents pre-release leaks, while
saving the environment from the hazardous materials that are used to create CD
packages, and the pollution caused by the planes, trains and trucks used for
their delivery.
    Compact Discs are made from many non-renewable materials --
polycarbonate, lacquer, dyes and various metals including aluminum, gold,
silver and titanium. With 200 billion of them, they have become a serious
environmental problem. Once the CD is manufactured, it is packaged in a
plastic "jewel case", bubble wrapped, and shipped many miles, burning
non-renewable fossil fuel resources, polluting the environment and
contributing to global warming.
    Although an individual may keep a CD for 20 years, according to the EPA
(Environmental Protection Agency), compact discs have a four year lifespan and
a 2 percent damage rate during the recording process. About 1 billion compact
discs weighing almost 20,000 tons are discarded annually in North America, and
they do not break down. This conservative estimate excludes discs with defects
discarded by the manufacturing sector.
    "The music industry, artists and advertisers are among the most
environmentally aware people on the earth; it's ironic that as a group they
had been unwittingly contributing to this serious global problem," said Cliff
Hunt, Chairman and COO of YANGAROO, "By using DMDS, record labels, artists and
advertisers can now participate in helping the planet and have their music
distributed in a more efficient and effective manner. That's the kind of
win-win situation that's good for everybody!"
