NewsStand: Enhancing the Way Publishers Publish and Readers Read: A profile of NewsStand, the company that develops technologies that allow publishers to distribute their content online, using portable document formats. The New York Times has a 25 percent stake in the company.

“Protecting copyrights and content when dealing with Internet delivery” is a huge issue, [said CEO Kit Webster], “and no other technology offers publishers the protection the NewsStand Reader provides.
