Graphics company to develop versions of their "Comic Surfing" manga reading software for a variety of foreign markets

To build support overseas for a manga delivery system for cellular phones, Japanese software and graphics company Celsys has launched what they are calling the "Comic Surfing Global Partners Program."

Celsys is the developer of a program called "Comic Surfing", which lets people read manga on their cellular phone. The aim of the program is to develop versions of the "Comic Surfing" software that are tailored to foreign markets and establish partnerships within the cellular communications industry who could offer the service to customers. Celsys is currently trying to establish partnerships in a number of international markets, including Asia, Europe, and North America. As part of the process, Celsys intends to develop a version of the software for each country where it is. By doing this, the company hopes that they can better address concerns with digital copyrights and other issues.

The service is being promoted to not only cellular companies, but also to manga publishers and software retailers. The company is planning to hold a press conference in February to provide more details about the project.
