    It sounds like an interesting article, but I didn't want to have to register to read it.

    Imagine how you'll feel in a couple of weeks when you'll have to pay for it.

    You're not registered on nytimes.com? Really? And you're in the newspaper business?

    Take two minutes. There's lots worth reading everyday.

    You don't have an account with NYTimes.com? What about using bugmenot.com to access the page?

    I was making a point. I'm more interested than the average reader in the subject and it's already too much hassle.

    Throw in subscription fees or micropayments, and you have an even bigger hassle.

    Isn't the problem that it's too easy to get the information for free, not too hard?

    Sort of. The problem is that there's no good way to get people to pay for information individually. The only model that ever really worked on a large scale was convincing advertisers to pay for it.

    NYT has become pretty aggressive about figuring out which IDs are linked to BugMeNot and deleting those IDs.
  12. I didn't have to register at all, and I know I'm not registered. It is too easy to get news for free.
