Brian MacDonald, chairman and CEO of ActiveCore said, "We want our revolutionary new game site, Recess Games, to stake out its place as one of the leading wireless entertainment portals in the world. Signing comprehensive agreements with ASCAP and BMI, the two largest U.S. performing rights groups, positions to be the focus for distribution of ring tone versions of millions of BMI and ASCAP represented songs."

Scheduled to launch in the next few weeks, Recess Games will feature downloadable games in various genres, online competitions, ring tones, chat facilities and more. –by Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
