The purpose of CAP is to provide a one-stop licensing program that provides the clients of media monitoring and evaluation service providers through these service providers with licensing for the majority of the titles required.
Unlike other licensing programs, that are limited to online newspapers, CAP covers all media distributed by the publisher including print, online, tablet, and mobile.
The purpose of this program is to provide media monitoring service and evaluation providers and their clients with compliant content for searching and viewing in a simple cost effective manner.
Publishers have a need to monetize content as an alternative to advertising. They are increasingly enforcing copyrights and dictating how their content can be used. In our segment, the Media Monitoring and Evaluation (MME) segment, the MME companies have a need to be copyright compliant and provide their customers with copyright compliance as well. The CAP program meets the needs of both parties and provides a solution that is simple and cost-effective.
BurrellesLuce has had a copyright compliance program for more than 18 years. This new program provides a new realistic revenue stream for publishers based on your client’s usage. This will allow publishers to monetize content at the article/photograph/graphic level in the MME market in a simple fair manner.
Currently, CAP has 69 publishers participating representing more than 2000 titles. The publisher reaction to this program has been unequivocally positive. The Associated Press (AP), The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Advance newspapers, the Hearst newspapers, The Dallas Morning News, The Seattle Times and Variety are just a few of the content providers participating in the CAP program.
There is no charge to the MME’s. CAP is designed to be access and usage based and cost effective for the MME’s Direct Customers.
CAP will collect fees for access to the desired content for inclusion in the search and then usage fees specific to the usage of the end-user.
BurrellesLuce has a Content Management Group that is dedicated to the CAP program and will work with your appropriate technical staff to review the requirements and delivery process.
Our goal is to be as accommodating as possible and minimize the effort required by our publishing partners. We’ve set up a minimum set of requirements that need to be met in order for BurrellesLuce to utilize the feeds. In most cases our publishing partners already have feeds in place that provide a starting point.
As long as the minimum requirements are being met, existing feeds may be used.
Our preferred method of receipt is to have the content pushed to our FTP servers a minimum of 4 times a day. If this is not possible to work into your workflow, we do have other methods that we have successfully used.
The content for CAP should be sent as XML format. At this time we do not need any graphics included with the content.
We can handle a feed either way, but if the articles are sent individually we would prefer for each file to have a unique file name.
As long as the tags are clearly defined, this is usable.
If the RSS leads us to XML content, generally we can use it, but this needs to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Each article should have:
