Exalead joins ACAP

Exalead has become a partner in the ACAP (Automated Content Access Protocol) initiative, a joint project of the World Association of Newspapers, the International Publishers Association and the European Publishers Council.

Working with leading publishers, search engines and other technical and commercial partners, APAC’s aim is to develop a global, open and flexible standard for communicating permissions information relating to the access and use of content on the Internet.

As a global provider of search software for business and the Web, Exalead is actively participating in the ACAP pilot project.

“Exalead offers the technical capacity, capability and enthusiasm to ensure the pilot project succeeds and to enable ACAP to demonstrate a fully workable proposal by the final project conference, which is to be held on 29 November in New York,” said Gavin O’Reilly, president of World Association of Newspapers, one of the pilot’s sponsors.
