e-Exclusion and Bot Rights: Legal aspects of the robots exclusion standard for public agencies and other public sector bodies with Swedish examples

  • Nicklas Lundblad

Abstract

Public sector use of the robot exclusion standard raises interesting questions about transparency, availability of public sector information and the principle of public access to information. This paper explores both actual examples of how public sector agencies in Sweden use the standard and an analysis of the legal problems related to use of the standard.
