NewspaperDirect Adopts ACAP

Jun 06, 2008

NewspaperDirect Inc., newspaper and magazine content distributor, announced that it is adopting the Automated Content Access Protocol (ACAP) for its digital publication networks, providing its publishing partners with more protection over their content. ACAP is a non-proprietary, global permissions tool and was developed by publishers in collaboration with search engine vendors. ACAP expands on Robots Exclusion Protocol, introducing indexing instructions with a higher level of granularity. This allows publishers to assign permissions and restrictions to individual sections of web pages.
