ACAP to Adopt Plus Image Licensing Standards

Jun 24, 2008

ACAP, the new protocol that enables publishers to control how their online content is re-used, is to adopt semantics of the Picture Licensing Universal System (PLUS). The PLUS standards facilitate the communication and management of image rights, providing for increased automation and machine readable image licenses. ACAP will use the PLUS License Data Format and PLUS Media Matrix standards to supplement the existing ACAP vocabulary for communicating license-related information in a machine-readable form to web crawlers and other automated devices that use web content.
