Have they looked at Creative Commons licensing?

A number of publishing organizations are develooping a standard protocol for granting publishing rights -- an Automated Content Access Protocol.

"In one example of how ACAP would work, a newspaper publisher could grant search engines permission to index its site, but specify that only select ones display articles for a limited time after paying a royalty."

The aim is to control spiders but I wonder if this has implications for bloggers?
