Cape Cod Times Online Beginning Subscription Service

Apparently the Cape Cod Times perceives that a large number of their readers have been reading the paper online, for free, instead of paying for the printed paper. In order to be compensated for their labors, they have devised a pay-per-view strategy to collect money from the website's readers. Unfortunately, it feels like a short-sighted reaction to what may be the inevitable truth.  For me, it'll mean that articles from the Times will be off-limits for my blog. It would make no sense to refer to an article that my readers can't see.

Then. Unfortunately they are getting bad advice if they think people will pay.
