                           2000 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

              As Adopted by the Board of Directors on June 16, 2000
                   Approved by Stockholders on August 24, 2000

      Section 1. Purpose; Definitions.

      The name of the plan is the Macrovision Corporation 2000 Equity Incentive
Plan (the "Plan"). The purpose of the Plan is to encourage and enable employees
(including officers and Directors) of Macrovision Corporation, a Delaware
corporation (the "Company") and its Subsidiaries, non-employee members of the
Board of Directors of the Company, and those consultants and other independent
contractors who provide services to the Company and its Subsidiaries and upon
whose judgment, initiative and efforts the Company and its Subsidiaries depend
for the successful conduct of their business to acquire proprietary interests in
the Company. It is anticipated that providing such persons with a direct stake
in the Company's welfare will assure a closer identification of their interests
with those of the Company, thereby stimulating their efforts on behalf of the
Company and its Subsidiaries and strengthening their desire to remain with the
Company and its Subsidiaries.

      Section 2. Administration of Plan; Authority to Select Participants and
Determine Awards

      (a) Powers of Administrator. The Administrator shall have the power and
authority to grant Awards consistent with the terms of the Plan, including the
power and authority:

            (i) to select those employees (including officers and Directors) of
      the Company and its Subsidiaries, non-employee Directors, and consultants
      and other independent contractors in service to the Company and its
      Subsidiaries to whom Awards may from time to time be granted;

            (ii) to determine the time or times of grant, and the extent, if
      any, of Incentive Stock Options, Nonstatutory Stock Options, Stock
      Appreciation Rights, and Restricted Stock Awards, or any combination of
      the foregoing, granted to any one or more participants;

            (iii) to determine the number of shares of Stock to be covered by
      any Award;

            (iv) to determine and modify from time to time the terms and
      conditions, including restrictions, not inconsistent with the terms of the
      Plan, of any Award, which terms and conditions may differ among individual
      Awards and participants, and to approve the form of written instruments
      evidencing the Awards;

            (v) to accelerate at any time the exercisability or vesting of all
      or any portion of any Award;

            (vi) subject to the provisions of Section 5(a)(ii), to extend at any
      time the period in which Stock Options may be exercised;

            (vii) to determine at any time whether, to what extent, and under
      what circumstances Stock and other amounts payable with respect to an
      Award shall be deferred either automatically or at the election of the
      participant and whether and to what extent the Company shall pay or credit
      amounts constituting interest (at rates determined by the Administrator)
      or dividends or deemed dividends on such deferrals; and

            (viii) at any time to adopt, alter and repeal such rules, guidelines
      and practices for administration of the Plan (including for any subplan or
      portion of the Plan that the Administrator may establish for a specific
      group of employees or other service providers) and for its own acts and
      proceedings as it shall deem advisable; to interpret the terms and
      provisions of the Plan and any Award (including related written
      instruments); to make all determinations it deems advisable for the
      administration of the Plan; to decide all disputes arising in connection
      with the Plan; and otherwise to supervise the administration of the Plan.

      All decisions and interpretations of the Administrator shall be binding on
all persons, including the Company and Plan participants.

      (b) Delegation of Authority to Grant Awards. The Administrator, in its
discretion, may delegate to the Chief Executive Officer or Chief Operating
Officer of the Company all or part of the Administrator's authority and duties
with respect to Awards, including the granting thereof, to individuals who are
not subject to the reporting and other provisions of Section 16 of the Act or
"covered employees" within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code. The
Administrator may revoke or amend the terms of a delegation at any time but such
action shall not invalidate any prior actions of the Administrator's delegate or
delegates that were consistent with the terms of the Plan.

      Section 3. Stock Issuable Under the Plan; Mergers; Substitution

      (a) Stock Issuable. The maximum number of shares of Stock reserved and
available for the grant of Awards under the Plan shall be three million
(3,000,000) shares; provided, however, that upon the Company's acquisition of
GLOBEtrotter Software, Inc., such maximum number of shares of Stock shall
increase automatically to four million five hundred thousand (4,500,000) shares.
For purposes of this limitation, the shares of Stock



underlying any Awards which expire or which are forfeited, canceled, reacquired
by the Company, satisfied without the issuance of Stock or otherwise terminated
(other than by exercise) shall be added back to the shares of Stock available
for issuance under the Plan. Subject to such overall limitation, shares of Stock
may be issued up to such maximum number pursuant to any type or types of Award;
provided, however, that Stock Options or Stock Appreciation Rights with respect
to no more than five hundred thousand (500,000) shares of Stock may be granted
to any one individual participant during any one calendar year period. The
shares available for issuance under the Plan may be authorized but unissued
shares of Stock or shares of Stock reacquired by the Company. Upon the exercise
of a Stock Appreciation Right settled in shares of Stock, the right to purchase
an equal number of shares of Stock covered by a related Stock Option, if any,
shall be deemed to have been surrendered and will no longer be exercisable, and
said number of shares of Stock shall no longer be available under the Plan.

      (b) Recapitalizations. If, through or as a result of any merger,
consolidation, sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company,
reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, stock dividend, stock split,
reverse stock split or other similar transaction, the outstanding shares of
Stock are increased or decreased or are exchanged for a different number or kind
of shares or other securities of the Company, or additional shares or new or
different shares or other securities of the Company or other non-cash assets are
distributed with respect to such shares of Stock or other securities, the
Administrator shall make an appropriate or proportionate adjustment in (i) the
maximum number of shares reserved for issuance under the Plan, (ii) the number
of Stock Options or Stock Appreciation Rights that can be granted to any one
individual participant, (iii) the number and kind of shares or other securities
subject to any then outstanding Awards under the Plan, and (iv) the price for
each share subject to any then outstanding Stock Options and Stock Appreciation
Rights under the Plan, without changing the aggregate exercise price (i.e., the
exercise price multiplied by the number of Stock Options and Stock Appreciation
Rights) as to which such Stock Options and Stock Appreciation Rights remain
exercisable. The adjustment by the Administrator shall be final, binding and
conclusive. No fractional shares of Stock shall be issued under the Plan
resulting from any such adjustment, but the Administrator in its discretion may
make a cash payment in lieu of fractional shares.

      (c) Mergers, etc. In the event of (i) a dissolution or liquidation of the
Company; (ii) a merger or consolidation in which the Company is the not the
surviving corporation (other than a merger or consolidation with a wholly-owned
subsidiary, a reincorporation of the Company in a different jurisdiction, or
other transaction in which there is no substantial change in the stockholders of
the Company or their relative stock holdings and the Stock Options and Stock
Appreciation Rights granted under this Plan are assumed, converted or replaced
by the successor corporation, which assumption will be binding on all
optionees); (iii) a merger in which the Company is the surviving corporation but
after which the stockholders of the Company (other than any stockholder which
merges (or which owns or controls another corporation which merges) with the
Company in such merger) cease to own their shares or other equity interests in
the Company; (iv) the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company; or
(v) any other transaction which qualifies as a "corporate transaction" under
Section 424(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, wherein the
stockholders of the Company give up all of their equity interest in the Company
(except for the acquisition, sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the
outstanding shares of the Company from or by the stockholders of the Company),
the Board, or the board of directors of any corporation assuming the obligations
of the Company, may, in its discretion, take any one or more of the following
actions, as to outstanding Stock Options and Stock Appreciation Rights: (I)
provide that such Stock Options shall be assumed or equivalent options shall be
substituted, by the acquiring or succeeding corporation (or an affiliate
thereof), (II) upon written notice to the optionees, provide that all
unexercised Stock Options and Stock Appreciation Rights will terminate
immediately prior to the consummation of such transaction unless exercised by
the optionee within a specified period following the date of such notice, and/or
(III) in the event of a business combination under the terms of which holders of
the Stock of the Company will receive upon consummation thereof a cash payment
for each share surrendered in the business combination, make or provide for a
cash payment to the optionees, equal to the difference between (A) the value (as
determined by the Administrator) of the consideration payable per share of Stock
pursuant to the business combination (the "Merger Price") multiplied by the
number of shares of Stock subject to such outstanding Stock Options and Stock
Appreciation Rights (to the extent then exercisable at prices not in excess of
the Merger Price) and (B) the aggregate exercise price of all such outstanding
Stock Options and Stock Appreciation Rights, in exchange for the termination of
such Stock Options and Stock Appreciation Rights.



      (d) Substitute Awards. The Administrator may grant Awards under the Plan
in substitution for stock and stock based awards held by employees of another
corporation who become employees of the Company or a Subsidiary as the result of
a merger or consolidation of the employing corporation with the Company or a
Subsidiary or the acquisition by the Company or a Subsidiary of property or
stock of the employing corporation. The Administrator may direct that the
substitute awards be granted on such terms and conditions as the Administrator
considers appropriate in the circumstances.

      Section 4. Eligibility

      Participants in the Plan shall be such full-time or part-time employees
(including officers and Directors) of the Company and its Subsidiaries,
non-employee Directors, and consultants and other independent contractors in
service to the Company and its Subsidiaries as the Administrator in its sole
discretion shall select from time to time.

      Section 5. Stock Options

      Any Stock Option granted under the Plan shall be in such form as the
Administrator may from time to time approve. Stock Options granted under the
Plan may be either Incentive Stock Options or Nonstatutory Stock Options.
Incentive Stock Options may be granted only to employees of the Company or any
Subsidiary that is a "subsidiary corporation" within the meaning of Section
424(f) of the Code. To the extent that any Option does not qualify as an
Incentive Stock Option, it shall be a Nonstatutory Stock Option. The
Administrator may from time to time adopt subplans to this Plan containing such
additional terms, conditions and restrictions, not inconsistent with the terms
of the Plan, as may be necessary to qualify the grants of Stock Options
thereunder for preferential treatment under the laws of any country or other
jurisdiction in which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries has employees,
non-employee Directors, consultants or other independent contractors.

      No Incentive Stock Option shall be granted under the Plan after May 31,
2010.

      (a) Terms and Conditions of Stock Options. The Administrator in its
discretion may grant Stock Options subject to the following terms and conditions
and such additional terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the terms of the
Plan, as the Administrator shall deem desirable:

            (i) Exercise Price. The exercise price per share for the Stock
      covered by a Stock Option granted pursuant to this Section 5(a) shall be
      determined by the Administrator at the time of grant, but shall not be
      less than 100% of the Fair Market Value of a share of Stock on the date of
      grant in the case of Incentive Stock Options, or less than 85% of the Fair
      Market Value of a share of Stock on the date of grant in the case of
      Nonstatutory Stock Options. If an employee owns or is deemed to own (by
      reason of the attribution rules of Section 424(d) of the Code) more than
      10% of the combined voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or
      of any "parent or subsidiary corporation" of the Company (within the
      meaning of Section 424(f) of the Code) and an Incentive Stock Option is
      granted to such employee, the exercise price per share for the Stock
      covered by such Incentive Stock Option shall be not less than 110% of the
      Fair Market Value of a share of Stock on the grant date.

            (ii) Option Term. The term of each Stock Option shall be fixed by
      the Administrator, but no Incentive Stock Option shall be exercisable more
      than ten years after the date the Option is granted. If an employee owns
      or is deemed to own (by reason of the attribution rules of Section 424(d)
      of the Code) more than 10% of the combined voting power of all classes of
      stock of the Company or of any "parent or subsidiary corporation" of the
      Company (within the meaning of Section 424(f) of the Code) and an
      Incentive Stock Option is granted to such employee, the term of such
      Option shall expire no more than five years after the date of grant.

            (iii) Exercisability; Rights of a Stockholder. Stock Options shall
      become exercisable at such time or times, whether or not in installments,
      as shall be determined by the Administrator at the time of grant. The
      Administrator may at any time accelerate the exercisability of all or any
      portion of any Stock Option. An optionee shall have the rights of a
      stockholder only as to shares acquired upon the exercise of a Stock Option
      and not as to unexercised Stock Options.



            (iv) Method of Exercise. Stock Options may be exercised in whole or
      in part, by giving written notice of exercise to the Company specifying
      the number of shares to be purchased. Payment of the purchase price shall
      be made in full concurrently with such exercise by any one of the
      following methods: (A) in cash; (B) if and to the extent the instrument
      evidencing the Option so provides and if the Company is not then
      prohibited from purchasing or acquiring shares of Stock, with shares of
      Stock that have been held by the optionee for the requisite period
      necessary to avoid a charge to the Company's earnings for financial
      reporting purposes, delivered in lieu of cash and valued at their Fair
      Market Value on the date of exercise; (C) through a "same day sale"
      commitment from the optionee and a broker-dealer that is a member of the
      National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (the "NASD Dealer")
      whereby the optionee irrevocably elects to exercise the Option and to sell
      a portion of the shares so purchased to pay for the exercise price, and
      whereby the NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such shares to
      forward the exercise price directly to the Company; (D) through a "margin"
      commitment from the optionee and a NASD Dealer whereby the optionee
      irrevocably elects to exercise the Option and to pledge the shares so
      purchased to the NASD Dealer in a margin account as security for a loan
      from the NASD Dealer in the amount of the exercise price , and whereby the
      NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such shares to forward the
      exercise price directly to the Company; or (E) any combination of the
      foregoing. The delivery of certificates representing the shares of Stock
      to be purchased pursuant to the exercise of a Stock Option will be
      contingent upon receipt from the optionee (or a purchaser acting in his
      stead in accordance with the provisions of the Stock Option) by the
      Company of the full purchase price for such shares and the fulfillment of
      any other requirements contained in the Stock Option or applicable
      provisions of laws.

            (v) Termination by Reason of Death. Any Stock Option held by an
      optionee whose employment by (or other business relationship with) the
      Company and its Subsidiaries is terminated by reason of the optionee's
      death may thereafter be exercised, to the extent it was exercisable by the
      optionee on the date of the optionee's death, by the legal representative
      of the optionee's estate or by any other person who acquires the right to
      exercise the option by reason of such death under the optionee's will or
      the laws of intestate succession, for a period of 12 months (or such other
      period as the Administrator shall specify in the Stock Option) from the
      date of death, but not later than the expiration of the stated term of the
      Option, if earlier.

            (vi) Termination by Reason of Disability. Any Stock Option held by
      an optionee whose employment by (or other business relationship with) the
      Company and its Subsidiaries is terminated by reason of Disability may
      thereafter be exercised, to the extent it was exercisable on the date of
      such termination, for a period of 12 months (or such other period as the
      Administrator shall specify in the Stock Option) from the date of such
      termination of employment (or business relationship), but not later than
      the expiration of the stated term of the Option, if earlier. The
      Administrator shall have sole authority and discretion to determine
      whether a participant's employment (or business relationship) has been
      terminated by reason of Disability. The Administrator may specify in any
      Stock Option that the death of an optionee during the period provided in
      this Section 5(a)(vi) for the exercise of the Option shall extend such
      period for a period ending not later than 12 months following the date of
      the optionee's death, subject to termination on the expiration of the
      stated term of the Option, if earlier.

            (vii) Termination by Reason of Retirement. Any Stock Option held by
      an optionee whose employment by the Company and its Subsidiaries is
      terminated by reason of Retirement may thereafter be exercised, to the
      extent it was exercisable on the date of such termination, for a period of
      12 months (or such other period as the Administrator shall specify) from
      the date of such termination of employment, but not later than the
      expiration of the stated term of the Option, if earlier. The Administrator
      may specify in any Stock Option that the death of an optionee during the
      period provided in this Section 5(a)(vii) for the exercise of the Option
      shall extend such period for a period ending not later than 12 months
      following the date of the optionee's death, subject to termination on the
      expiration of the stated term of the Option, if earlier.

            (viii) Termination for Cause. If any optionee's employment by (or
      business relationship with) the Company and its Subsidiaries is terminated
      for Cause, any Stock Option held by such optionee, including any Stock
      Option that is exercisable at the time of such termination, shall
      immediately terminate and be of no further force and effect; provided,
      however, that the Administrator may, in its sole discretion, 



      provide in any Stock Option that such Stock Option can be exercised, to
      the extent it was exercisable on the date of such termination, for a
      period of up to 30 days from the date of termination of employment (or
      business relationship), but not later than the expiration of the stated
      term of the Option, if earlier.

            (ix) Other Termination. Unless otherwise determined by the
      Administrator, if an optionee's employment by (or business relationship
      with) the Company and its Subsidiaries terminates for any reason other
      than death, Disability, Retirement, or for Cause, any Stock Option held by
      such optionee may thereafter be exercised, to the extent it was
      exercisable on the date of such termination, for three months (or such
      other period not to exceed 60 months as the Administrator shall specify)
      from the date of termination of employment (or business relationship), but
      not later than the expiration of the stated term of the Option, if
      earlier.

            (x) Annual Limit on Incentive Stock Options. To the extent required
      for "incentive stock option" treatment under Section 422 of the Code, the
      aggregate Fair Market Value (determined as of the time of grant) of the
      shares of Stock with respect to which Incentive Stock Options granted
      under this Plan and any other plan of the Company or its parent and
      subsidiary corporations become exercisable for the first time by an
      optionee during any calendar year shall not exceed $100,000. To the extent
      that any Stock Option exceeds this limit, it shall constitute a
      Nonstatutory Stock Option.

      (b) Non-Transferability of Options. No Stock Option shall be transferable
by the optionee otherwise than by will or by the laws of descent and
distribution and all Stock Options shall be exercisable, during the optionee's
lifetime, only by the optionee. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrator
may provide in an option agreement evidencing a Nonstatutory Stock Option that
the optionee may transfer, without consideration for the transfer, such
Nonstatutory Stock Option to members of his immediate family, to trusts for the
benefit of such family members, to partnerships in which such family members are
the only partners, or to charitable organizations, provided that the transferee
agrees in writing with the Company to be bound by all of the terms and
conditions of the Plan and the applicable option agreement.

      (c) Form of Settlement. Shares of Stock issued upon exercise of a Stock
Option shall be free of all restrictions under the Plan, except as otherwise
provided in the Plan.

      Section 6. Stock Appreciation Rights.

      (a) Nature of Stock Appreciation Rights. A Stock Appreciation Right is an
award entitling the recipient to receive an amount in cash or shares of Stock or
a combination thereof having a value equal to the excess of the Fair Market
Value of a share of Stock on the date of exercise over the per share exercise
price of the Stock Appreciation Right set by the Administrator at the time of
grant, which exercise price shall be not less than the Fair Market Value of a
share of Stock on the date of grant (or not less than the Option exercise price
per share, if the Stock Appreciation Right was granted in tandem with a Stock
Option) multiplied by the number of shares of Stock with respect to which the
Stock Appreciation Right shall have been exercised, with the Administrator
having the right to determine the form of payment.

      (b) Grant and Exercise of Stock Appreciation Rights. Stock Appreciation
Rights may be granted by the Administrator in tandem with, or independently of,
any Stock Option granted pursuant to Section 5 of the Plan. In the case of a
Stock Appreciation Right granted in tandem with a Nonstatutory Stock Option,
such Stock Appreciation Right may be granted either at or after the time of the
grant of such Option. In the case of a Stock Appreciation Right granted in
tandem with an Incentive Stock Option, such Stock Appreciation Right may be
granted only at the time of the grant of the Option.

      (c) Terms and Conditions of Stock Appreciation Rights. Stock Appreciation
Rights shall be subject to such terms and conditions as shall be determined from
time to time by the Administrator, subject to the following:

            (i) Stock Appreciation Rights granted in tandem with Options shall
      be exercisable at such time or times and to the extent that the related
      Stock Options shall be exercisable. A Stock Appreciation 



      Right or applicable portion thereof granted in tandem with a Stock Option
      shall terminate and no longer be exercisable upon the termination or
      exercise of the related Option.

            (ii) Upon exercise of a Stock Appreciation Right, the applicable
      portion of any related Option shall be surrendered.

            (iii) Stock Appreciation Rights granted in tandem with an Option
      shall be transferable only when and to the extent that the underlying
      Option would be transferable. Stock Appreciation Rights not granted in
      tandem with an Option shall not be transferable otherwise than by will or
      the laws of descent or distribution. All Stock Appreciation Rights shall
      be exercisable during the participant's lifetime only by the participant
      or the participant's legal representative.

      Section 7. Restricted Stock Awards

      (a) Nature of Restricted Stock Awards. A Restricted Stock Award is an
Award entitling the recipient to acquire shares of Stock subject to such
restrictions and conditions as the Administrator may determine at the time of
grant ("Restricted Stock"), at a purchase price and for such consideration as
the Administrator may determine, which price shall not be less than 85% of the
Fair Market Value of the Stock on the date of issuance. Such Restricted Stock
issuances may, at the discretion of the Administrator, be based on continuing
employment (or other business relationship) with the Company and its
Subsidiaries and/or achievement of pre-established performance goals and
objectives. Restricted Stock Awards shall be limited to a total of one hundred
thousand (100,000) shares of Stock.

      (b) Rights as a Stockholder. Upon execution of a written instrument
setting forth the Restricted Stock Award and paying any applicable purchase
price, a participant shall have the rights of a stockholder with respect to the
voting of the Restricted Stock, subject to such conditions contained in the
written instrument evidencing the Restricted Stock Award. Unless the
Administrator shall otherwise determine, certificates evidencing the Restricted
Stock shall remain in the possession of the Company or of a third party escrow
holder until such Restricted Stock is vested as provided in Section 7(d) below.

      (c) Restrictions. Restricted Stock may not be sold, assigned, transferred,
pledged or otherwise encumbered or disposed of except as specifically provided
herein or in the written instrument evidencing the Restricted Stock Award. If a
participant's employment (or other business relationship) with the Company and
its Subsidiaries terminates for any reason, the Company shall have the right to
repurchase from the participant or the participant's legal representative at
their purchase price the Restricted Stock with respect to which conditions have
not lapsed.

      (d) Vesting of Restricted Stock. The Administrator at the time of grant
shall specify the date or dates and/or the attainment of pre-established
performance goals, objectives and other conditions on which the
non-transferability of the Restricted Stock and the Company's right of
repurchase shall lapse. Subsequent to such date or dates and/or the attainment
of such pre-established performance goals, objectives and other conditions, the
shares on which all restrictions have lapsed shall no longer be Restricted Stock
and shall be "vested." Except as may otherwise be provided by the Administrator,
a participant's rights in any shares of Restricted Stock that have not vested
shall terminate automatically upon the participant's termination of employment
(or other business relationship) with the Company and its Subsidiaries and such
shares shall be subject to the Company's right of repurchase as provided in
Section 7(c) above.

      (e) Waiver, Deferral and Reinvestment of Dividends. The written instrument
evidencing the Restricted Stock Award may require or permit the immediate
payment, waiver, deferral or investment of dividends paid on the Restricted
Stock.

      Section 8. Tax Withholding

      (a) Payment By Participant. Each participant shall, no later than the date
as of which the value of an Award or of any Stock or other amounts received
thereunder first becomes includable in the gross income of the 



participant for Federal income tax purposes, pay to the Company, or make
arrangements satisfactory to the Administrator regarding payment of, any
Federal, state, or local taxes of any kind required by law to be withheld with
respect to such income. The Company and its Subsidiaries shall, to the extent
permitted by law, have the right to deduct any such taxes from any payment of
any kind otherwise due to the participant.

      (b) Payment in Stock. Subject to approval by the Administrator, a
participant may elect to have such tax withholding obligation satisfied, in
whole or in part, by (i) authorizing the Company to withhold from shares of
Stock to be issued pursuant to any Award a number of shares with an aggregate
Fair Market Value (as of the date the withholding is effected) that would
satisfy the withholding amount due, or (ii) transferring to the Company shares
of Stock owned by the participant with an aggregate Fair Market Value (as of the
date the withholding is effected) that would satisfy the withholding amount due.

      Section 9. Transfer, Leave of Absence, Etc.

      For purposes of the Plan, the following events shall not be deemed a
termination of employment:

      (a) a transfer to the employment of the Company from a Subsidiary or from
the Company to a Subsidiary, or from one Subsidiary to another; or

      (b) an approved leave of absence for military service or sickness, or for
any other purpose approved by the Company, if the employee's right to
re-employment is guaranteed either by a statute or by contract or under the
policy pursuant to which the leave of absence was granted or if the
Administrator otherwise so provides in writing.

      Section 10. Amendments and Termination

      The Board may, at any time, amend or discontinue the Plan and the
Administrator may, at any time, amend or cancel any outstanding Award (or
provide substitute Awards at the same or reduced exercise or purchase price or
with no exercise or purchase price in a manner not inconsistent with the terms
of the Plan, but such price, if any, must satisfy the requirements which would
apply to the substitute or amended Award if it were then initially granted under
this Plan) for the purpose of satisfying changes in law or for any other lawful
purpose, but no such action shall adversely affect rights under any outstanding
Award without the holder's consent. If and to the extent determined by the
Administrator to be required to ensure that Incentive Stock Options granted
under the Plan are qualified under Section 422 of the Code, Plan amendments
shall be subject to approval by the Company's stockholders entitled to vote at a
meeting of stockholders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without the prior
approval of the Company's stockholders entitled to vote at a meeting of
stockholders, no outstanding Award shall be amended to reduce its exercise or
purchase price or cancelled and replaced with a substitute Award at a lower
exercise or purchase price.

      Section 11. Status of Plan

      With respect to the portion of any Award which has not been exercised and
any payments in cash, Stock or other consideration not received by a
participant, a participant shall have no rights greater than those of a general
creditor of the Company unless the Administrator shall otherwise expressly
determine in connection with any Award or Awards. In its sole discretion, the
Administrator may authorize the creation of trusts or other arrangements to meet
the Company's obligations to deliver Stock or make payments with respect to
Awards hereunder, provided that the existence of such trusts or other
arrangements is consistent with the foregoing sentence.

      Section 12. General Provisions

      (a) No Distribution; Compliance With Legal Requirements. The Administrator
may require each person acquiring Stock pursuant to an Award to represent to and
agree with the Company in writing that such person is acquiring the shares
without a view to distribution thereof. No shares of Stock shall be issued
pursuant to an Award until all applicable securities law and other legal and
stock exchange or similar requirements have been satisfied. The Administrator
may require the placing of such stop-orders and restrictive legends on
certificates for Stock and Awards as it considers appropriate.



      (b) Delivery Of Stock Certificates. Delivery of stock certificates to
participants under this Plan shall be deemed effected for all purposes when the
Company or a stock transfer agent of the Company shall have mailed such
certificates in the United States mail, addressed to the participant, at the
participant's last known address on file with the Company.

      (c) Other Compensation Arrangements; No Employment Rights. Nothing
contained in this Plan shall prevent the Board from adopting other or additional
compensation arrangements, including trusts, and such arrangements may be either
generally applicable or applicable only in specific cases. The adoption of this
Plan and the grant of Awards do not confer upon any employee any right to
continued employment with the Company or any Subsidiary.

      Section 13. Effective Date of Plan

      This Plan shall become effective when adopted by the Company's Board of
Directors, but no Award granted under the Plan shall become exercisable and no
shares shall be issuable under the Plan unless the Plan shall have been approved
by the Company's stockholders. If such stockholder approval is not obtained
within twelve (12) months of the Board's approval, then all Awards previously
granted under the Plan shall terminate, and no further Awards shall be granted
or issued.

      Section 14. Governing Law

      This Plan shall be governed by California law except to the extent such
law is preempted by federal law; provided, however, that the Delaware General
Corporation Law shall apply to the issuance of Stock and other securities
hereunder. .



                                   ADDENDUM TO

                           2000 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

   Adopted by Resolution of the Board of Directors of Macrovision Corporation
                                on July 28, 2000

      The terms and conditions set forth herein shall apply to unapproved stock
options to acquire common stock of Macrovision Corporation granted to employees
of Macrovision Corporation's UK subsidiaries, currently C-Dilla Limited and

      "UK Employers' NIC" shall mean Secondary National Insurance Contributions
for which employing companies are liable in the first instance in respect of
employees employed in the United Kingdom.

2. ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS ON OPTION GRANTS TO UK EMPLOYEES

      To the extent that it is, or becomes lawful to do so, each Option granted
to an employee of a UK subsidiary of Macrovision shall be subject to a condition
(including any requirement that the optionee of the Option enter into an
election in a form agreed by the UK Inland Revenue with the relevant Subsidiary)
that any liability of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to pay UK
Employers' NIC in respect of the exercise of the Option shall be the liability
of the relevant optionee and payable by or recoverable from that optionee in
accordance with the provisions below. In addition to such other terms and
conditions as are required or permitted under the Plan, the Stock Option
Agreement shall specify that the optionee is liable to pay UK Employers' NIC as
a term of each such Option.

3. PAYMENT OF NIC UPON EXERCISE BY UK EMPLOYEES

      If, as the result of the exercise of an Option, the optionee is required
to either bear the cost of all or part of the UK Employers' NIC or to enter into
an election in the form envisaged in the Inland Revenue Press Release of 19 May
2000 Reference 90/00, then the optionee shall either (a) pay to the Company or
Inland Revenue the amount of the UK Employers' NIC liability arising on the
exercise of that Option at the time of exercise or (b) grant to the Company the
irrevocable authority to deliver to a designated brokerage firm that whole
number of shares of Stock having a Fair Market Value at the time of exercise
equal to but not less than the amount of the UK Employers' NIC for which the
optionee is liable as a result of the exercise of the Option, and provide
irrevocable written instructions to the designated brokerage firm to effect the
immediate sale of such shares and to remit to the Company, out of the sale
proceeds available on the settlement date, sufficient funds to satisfy the UK
employers' NIC for which the optionee is liable, and the Company shall issue to
the optionee the balance of such shares of Stock. No shares of Stock shall be
issued to an optionee until all payments and/or irrevocable authority required
by this provision have been made or given.



4. PAYMENT OF PAYE UPON EXERCISE BY UK EMPLOYEES

      If, as the result of the exercise of an Option, the optionee is liable for
taxes, duties or other amounts on such exercise and the Company or any
Subsidiary is liable to make a payment to the appropriate United Kingdom
authorities on account of that liability, then the optionee shall either (a) pay
to the Company or such Subsidiary the amount of such liability at the time of
exercise or (b) grant to the Company the irrevocable authority to deliver to a
designated brokerage firm for immediate sale a sufficient number of the optioned
shares of Stock acquired by the optionee on exercise to raise proceeds
sufficient to satisfy the liablity of the Optionee for the amount of such taxes,
duties and other amounts for which the optionee is liable as a result of the
exercise of the Option, and the Company shall issue to the optionee the balance
of such shares of Stock. No shares of Stock shall be issued to an optionee until
all payments and/or irrevocable authority required by this provision have been
made or given.

      Option Certificate shall be sent to the Participant together with a Letter
      of Grant as soon as practicable after the Date of Grant.



2.4   Where the circumstances noted in Rule 5.2 apply New Options may be granted
      within the terms of paragraph 15(1) Schedule 9 in consideration for the
      release of Options previously granted under this Plan. Such New Options
      are deemed to be equivalent to the old Options and to have been granted
      within the terms of this Plan.

2.5   The Board may revoke or amend the terms of a delegation of its authority
      and duties with respect to the administration of the Plan but such action
      shall not invalidate any actions of the Board's delegate or delegates
      prior to such revocation which were consistent with the terms of the Plan.

3     Limitation on Grants

3.1   Any Option granted to an Eligible Employee shall be limited and take
      effect so that immediately following such grant he would hold Subsisting
      Options over shares with an aggregate Market Value not exceeding
      (pound)30,000, or such other limit specified in paragraph 28 of Schedule
      9.

      For the purpose of this Rule 3.1, Subsisting Options shall comprise
      Subsisting Options granted under this Plan and subsisting options granted
      under all Other Option Plans.

      For the purpose of this Rule 3.1 the Market Value of shares shall be
      calculated in accordance with paragraph 28(3) of Schedule 9.

4     Exercise of Options

4.1   Subject to each of the succeeding rules of this Rule 4 and Rule 7 any
      Subsisting Option may be exercised by the Participant or, if deceased, by
      his personal representatives in accordance with the provisions of Rule 5
      or if earlier at the time of or at any time following the occurrence of
      the earliest of the following events:

(i)   the third anniversary of the Date of Grant or such later date specified in
      the Letter of Grant by the Administrator at the Date of Grant;

(ii)  the death of the Participant;

(iii) upon the Participant ceasing to be a Group Employee where that cessation
      was by reason of Injury, Ill Health, Disability, Redundancy or Retirement;

(iv)  upon the Participant ceasing to be a Group Employee, where that cessation
      was by reason either of the company or companies of which he was an
      employee ceasing to be a Group Company or of the office or employment
      relating to a business or part of a business which is transferred to a
      person who is not a Group Company;



(v)   upon the Participant ceasing to be a Group Employee other than for Cause
      or for a reason falling within Rule 4.1(ii), (iii) or (iv) and the
      Administrator consenting prior to the date of cessation to the exercise of
      his Options in whole or in part.

4.2   Unless the Administrator determines otherwise at the Date of Grant (in
      which case the relevant details shall be included in the Letter of Grant
      sent to the Participant) where an Option becomes exercisable as a result
      of an event specified in Rule 4.1 (ii), (iii) (iv) or (v), the Option may
      be exercised only as to the following numbers of Shares:

            (i) none where the death or the cessation occurs prior to the first
            anniversary of the Date of Grant;

            (ii) one sixth of the number of Shares subject to Option where death
            or the cessation occurs on or after the first anniversary of the
            Date of Grant but prior to the second anniversary of the date of
            Grant; or

            (iii) one half of the number of Shares subject to Option where death
            or cessation occurs on or after the second anniversary of the Date
            of Grant but prior to the third anniversary of the Date of Grant.

4.3   An Option shall lapse and become thereafter incapable of exercise on the
      earliest of the following events:

(i)   the tenth anniversary of the Date of Grant or such earlier date specified
      by the Administrator at the Date of Grant;

(ii)  the first anniversary of the death of the Participant;

(iii) twelve months after the Participant ceases to be a Group Employee where
      the cessation was by reason of Injury, Ill Health, or Disability;

(iv)  three months after the Participant ceases to be a Group Employee where
      that cessation was by reason of Redundancy, or Retirement (provided that,
      if the Participant should die within such three month period, the Option
      shall lapse one year following the date on which the Participant ceased to
      be a Group employee) or either of the company or companies of which he was
      an employee ceasing to be a Group Company or of the office or employment
      relating to a business or part of a business which is transferred to a
      person who is not a Group Company;

(v)   immediately upon a Participant ceasing to be a Group Employee where that
      cessation was for Cause;



(vi)  immediately in the case of a cessation falling within Rule 4.1 (v) unless
      the Administrator has determined prior to the date of the cessation that
      the Option shall lapse three months following cessation;

(vii) the Participant being adjudicated bankrupt;

(viii) the surrender of the Option by the Participant;

(ix)  on the date determined in accordance with Rule 5.6.

4.4   Where a Participant gives or is given notice to terminate his office or
      employment such that he will no longer be a Group Employee and the office
      or employment will cease for a reason not falling within Rule 4.1 (iii) or
      (iv), his Option will not be exercisable from the date such notice is
      given until, providing the Option has not then lapsed in accordance with
      Rule 4.3, the day following the date he ceases to be a Group Employee.

4.5   No Option may be exercised by a Participant at any time when he is
      precluded by paragraph 8 of Schedule 9 from participating in the Plan.

5     Take-overs, Liquidations and Option Exchanges

5.1   If any person obtains Control of the Company as a result of making:

(i)   a general offer to acquire the whole of the issued share capital of the
      Company (other than that which is already owned by him) which is
      unconditional or which is made on a condition such that if it is satisfied
      the person making the offer will have Control of the Company; or

(ii)  a general offer to acquire all the shares (other than shares which are
      already owned by him) in the Company which are of the same class as Shares
      subject to a Subsisting Option

            then the Company shall notify all Participants as soon as is
      practicable of the offer in accordance with Rule 8.4. Any Subsisting
      Option may, subject to Rule 5.4, be exercised (but so that any exercise
      hereunder shall be conditional upon Control being obtained) from the date
      of the receipt of that notification up to the expiry of the specified
      period ending not less than thirty days from the time when the person
      making the offer has obtained Control of the Company and any condition
      subject to which the offer is made has been satisfied. Subject to Rule
      5.6, at the end of the specified period an unexercised Option shall lapse.



5.2   If as a result of an event specified in Rule 5.1 a company has obtained
      Control of the Company the Participant may, if the Acquiring Company so
      agrees, release any Subsisting Option he holds in consideration for the
      grant of a New Option pursuant to Rule 2.4.

      A New Option issued in consideration of the release of an Option shall be
      evidenced by an Option Certificate which shall import the relevant
      provisions of these Rules.

      A New Option shall, for all other purposes of this Plan, be treated as
      having been acquired at the same time as the corresponding released
      Option.

5.3   If any person obtains Control of the Company other than as a result of the
      events specified in Rule 5.1 then the Administrator shall notify all
      Participants as soon as practicable after the change of Control in
      accordance with Rule 8.4. Any Subsisting Option may, subject to Rule 5.4,
      be exercised (but so that any exercise hereunder shall be conditional upon
      Control being obtained) from the date of the receipt of that notification
      up to the expiry of a specified period ending not less than thirty days
      thereafter. Subject to Rule 5.6, at the end of this specified period an
      unexercised Option shall lapse.

5.4   If as a result of the events specified in Rules 5.1 or 5.3 a company will
      obtain Control of the Company then notwithstanding Rules 5.1 and 5.3 if
      when the company acquires Control the majority of the persons comprising
      its board are members of the Board an Option will only become exercisable
      as a result of the operation of Rules 5.1 and 5.3 in the event that
      neither an offer is made with the agreement of the Acquiring Company for
      the grant of New Options pursuant to Rule 5.2 in consideration of the
      release of all Subsisting Options nor a person makes an offer to exchange
      all Subsisting Options for options which meet the requirements of
      sub-paragraphs 15(3) (c) and (d) of Schedule 9 within 30 days of the date
      of change of Control referred to in Rules 5.1 or 5.3. If no offer is made
      within these periods so defined Rules 5.1 and 5.3 shall continue to apply.
      For the avoidance of doubt this Rule 5.4 does not affect the date the
      Option lapse under Rules 5.1 or 5.3.

5.5   If notice is duly given of a general meeting at which a resolution will be
      proposed for the voluntary winding-up of the Company, then the Company
      shall notify all Participants as soon as is practicable and any Subsisting
      Option shall be exercisable (but so that any exercise hereunder shall be
      conditional upon such resolution being passed) at any time thereafter
      until the resolution is duly passed or defeated or the general meeting is
      concluded or adjourned, whichever shall first occur. Subject to Rule 5.6,
      if such a resolution is passed an unexercised Option shall thereupon
      lapse.

5.6   An Option whether or not exercisable prior to or as a result of the
      occurrence of an event specified in Rules 5.1, 5.3 or 5.5 shall if an
      event so specified occurs lapse in accordance with the relevant sub-rule
      of Rule 5, or if earlier, as determined by Rule 4.3 (i) to (ix).



5.7   For the purpose of this Rule 5 other than Rule 5.2 a person shall be
      deemed to have obtained Control of a Company if he and others acting in
      concert with him have together obtained Control of it.

5.8   The exercise of an Option pursuant to the preceding provisions of this
      Rule 5 shall be subject to the provisions of Rule 7.

5.9   A New Option shall not be exercisable by virtue of the event pursuant to
      which it was granted.

6     Variation of Share Capital

6.1   In the event of any variation of the share capital of the Company,
      including, but without prejudice to the generality of the preceding words,
      any capitalisation, rights issue or open offer or any consolidation,
      sub-division or reduction of capital by the Company, the number of Shares
      subject to any Option and the Exercise Price may be adjusted by the
      Administrator in such manner as it in its absolute discretion determines
      to be appropriate provided that:

(i)   at any time when the Plan remains approved by the Inland Revenue no
      adjustment shall take effect without the prior approval of the Board of
      Inland Revenue;

(ii)  at any time when the Plan remains approved by the Inland Revenue following
      the adjustment the Shares continue to satisfy the conditions specified in
      paragraphs 10 to 14 inclusive of Schedule 9;

(iii) the aggregate amount payable on the exercise of an Option in full is not
      increased.

      Such variation shall be deemed to be effective, once Inland Revenue
      approval has been given, from the record date at which the respective
      variation applied to other shares of the same class as the Shares. Any
      Options exercised within the period from the record date to the date when
      the Options are adjusted shall be treated as exercised with the benefit of
      the variation.

6.2   If an adjustment is made pursuant to Rule 6.1 above with the intention
      that the Plan shall cease to be approved by the Inland Revenue, the
      Company shall immediately notify the Inland Revenue.

6.3   The Administrator shall take such steps as it considers necessary to
      notify Participants of any adjustment made under Rule 6.1 and to call in,
      cancel, endorse, issue or reissue any Option Certificate consequent upon
      such adjustment.

7     Manner of Exercise of Options

7.1   No Option may be exercised whilst the Plan is approved by the Inland
      Revenue unless the Shares satisfy the conditions specified in paragraphs
      10 to 14 inclusive of Schedule 9.



7.2   An Option shall be exercised in whole or in part by the Participant or, as
      the case may be, his personal representatives and the exercise shall be
      effective on the date of receipt by the Company of a duly completed Notice
      of Exercise accompanied by the appropriate payment and the relevant Option
      Certificate.

7.3   Subject to Rule 7.4 where an Option is exercised, the number of Shares
      specified in the Notice of Exercise given in accordance with Rule 7.2
      shall be transferred to the Participant within 30 days of the date of
      exercise, or as soon as practicable following compliance with applicable
      laws or regulations for the issuance registration or transfer of Shares,
      and the Company shall arrange for the delivery of evidence of title
      thereof. Save for any rights determined by reference to a record date
      preceding the date of transfer, such Shares shall rank pari passu with the
      other shares of the same class then in issue.

7.4   If an Option is exercised and the Participant is liable to tax, duties or
      other amounts on such exercise and any Group Company is liable to make a
      payment to the appropriate authorities on account of that liability the
      Participant shall grant to the Company the irrevocable authority, as agent
      of the Participant and on his behalf, to sell or procure the sale of
      sufficient of the Shares subject to Option so that the net proceeds
      payable to the Group Company are so far as possible equal to but not less
      than the amount payable to the appropriate authorities and the Company
      shall account to the Participant for any balance.

      No Shares shall be transferred to the Participant until the Group Company
      has received payment. This Rule 7.4 shall not apply if the Participant
      makes alternative arrangements to the satisfaction of his employer or
      former employer and the Administrator is informed by that Group Company
      that the arrangements are satisfactory.

7.5   When an Option is exercised in part, the balance shall remain exercisable
      on the same terms as originally applied to the Option and a new Option
      Certificate in respect of the balance shall be issued by the Administrator
      as soon as possible after the partial exercise. 7.6 Where Shares are
      listed or dealt in on any Recognised Exchange no Option may be exercised
      in contravention of any securities transactions rules of the Recognised
      Exchange, as may from time to time be in force.

8     Administration and Amendment

8.1   The Plan shall be administered by the Administrator whose decision on all
      disputes shall be final.

8.2   The Administrator may from time to time amend these Rules provided that:

(i)   no amendment may materially adversely affect a Participant as regards an
      Option granted prior to the amendment being made except with the consent
      in writing of the Participant;



(ii)  no amendment shall have effect until approved by the Board of Inland
      Revenue whilst the Plan is and is intended to remain approved by the
      Inland Revenue pursuant to Schedule 9; and

(iii) no amendment made with the intention that the Plan shall cease to be
      approved by the Inland Revenue shall take effect unless at the same time
      the Inland Revenue is notified of such amendment.

8.3   The cost of establishing and operating the Plan shall be borne by the
      Participating Companies in such proportions as the Administrator shall
      determine.

8.4   Any notice or other communication under or in connection with the Plan may
      be given by the Company or to the Company either personally or by post or
      by commercial courier service, or if so permitted by the recipient, by the
      provision of the required information by electronic means. Notice to the
      Company shall be sent to the Secretary of the Company or to such other
      officer designated by the Administrator; items sent by post or commercial
      courier service shall be pre-paid .

8.5   The Company shall at all times keep available sufficient Shares to satisfy
      the exercise to the full extent still possible of all Subsisting Options.

8.6   For the purposes of Rule 3.1 of the Plan, the calculation of the pounds
      sterling or United States dollars equivalent of a specified amount shall
      be the amount converted into pounds sterling or United States dollars (as
      the case may be) at the highest buying rate shown in the day's spread as
      published in the London Financial Times for the date of the grant of the
      Options or at such other rate as may be agreed from time to time with the
      Shares Valuation Division of the Inland Revenue.

9     Miscellaneous

9.1   The Plan shall terminate on the tenth anniversary of the date of adoption
      of the Plan by the Company or at any earlier time by the passing of a
      resolution of the Board. Termination of the Plan shall be without
      prejudice to the subsisting rights of Participants. The Plan and all
      Options granted under it shall be governed and construed in accordance
      with UK Law.

9.2   The rights and obligations of any individual under the terms of his office
      or employment with any Group Company shall not be affected by his
      participation in the Plan or any right which he may have to participate
      therein, and an individual who participates therein shall waive any and
      all rights to compensation or damages in consequence of the termination of
      his office or employment for any reason whatsoever insofar as those rights
      arise or may arise from his ceasing to have rights under or be entitled to
      exercise any Option under the Plan as a result of such termination.



9.3   The existence of any Option or Options shall not affect in any way the
      right or power of the Company or its shareholders to make or authorise any
      or all adjustments, recapitalisation, reorganisations, reductions of
      capital, purchase or redemption of its own shares or other changes in the
      Company's capital structure or any merger or consolidation of the Company,
      or any issue of bonds, debentures, preferred or prior preference stock
      ahead of or convertible into, or otherwise affecting the Shares or the
      rights thereof, or the dissolution or liquidation of the Company, or any
      sale or transfer of all or any part of its assets or business, or any
      other corporate act or proceeding, whether of a similar character or
      otherwise.

9.4   Neither the grant of an Option nor any benefit which may accrue to a
      Participant on the exercise of an Option shall form part of that
      Participant's pensionable remuneration for the purposes of any pension
      plan or similar arrangement which may be operated by any Group Company.



                                                                      Appendix I

          To be typed on headed note paper of Macrovision Corporation.

Dear [Participant]

Macrovision Corporation ("the Company")
Approved Share Option Plan ("the Plan")

I am pleased to inform you that the Company has granted you an option under the
rules of the Plan on [    ] ("the Date of Grant") to acquire a maximum of 
[Number] shares in the common stock of the Company at an Exercise Price of [ ]
per share ("the Option"). Accordingly, I enclose an Option Certificate which
sets out the terms of the Option.

When you wish to exercise the Option, whether in whole or in part, you should
complete the notice of exercise on the back of your Option Certificate and send
it to me. If you are only exercising part of the Option, a new certificate will
be sent to you together with a fresh notice of exercise.

Under current legislation, there will be no charge to income tax on the exercise
of the Option if the Plan retains Inland Revenue approval and, in addition to
complying with the rules of the Plan, you exercise the Option:

o     not earlier than 3 or later than 10 years after the Date of Grant; and

o     not earlier than 3 years following the last exercise by you of an option
      (obtained under this or any other approved executive share option plan)
      which enjoyed relief from income tax. Options exercised on the same day
      are treated as one exercise for this purpose.

Yours sincerely

Company Secretary
[Macrovision Corporation]

Note: This letter and the Option Certificate are important documents and should
be kept in a safe place.
