Yahoo Monetizes Search Boss API

 6:36 pm on Feb 11, 2009 (gmt 0)

Yahoo Monetizes Search Boss API [ysearchblog.com]
Today, we’re announcing a handful of new features for Yahoo! Search BOSS as well as important updates on our terms of service and pricing.

Three New Features
Perhaps the most important component of what we’re releasing today is access to SearchMonkey structured data through the BOSS API. The primary way in which SearchMonkey acquires structured data is by using the Yahoo! Web Crawler to scour the web for embedded semantic markup such as microformats or RDF. Starting today, all this data is available to BOSS API users.

Open Monetization & Pricing
Effective immediately, we have changed our terms of service to allow developers to use third party monetization platforms (ad-based or otherwise). For obvious reasons monetization is critical to the BOSS ecosystem, so to provide as many opportunities as possible we have decided to adjust our terms to provide developers with more flexibility.

So does this mean that anyone can scrape content from our sites using yahoo crawlers on yahoo IPs?

I'd love to get a sense of what this all means, but it tends to go completely over my head!
