You can’t stop it. It’s Free

Simple example of how trying to charge for some things on the web is nearly impossible.

This is the story in WSJ. You can’t read it because you need to subscribe.

But you can go here.

Or here.

And get it for Free.

The point is quite simple.

If information is freely available people won’t pay you for it.

Aping the off-line model won’t work on-line. What is the WSJ value to this story? Until WSJ can define that, they will always be fighting off newswires.

A differential pricing model is probably the answers.

For free is the news.

You should have to pay for WSJ’s analysis of the news and their interpretation of its impact.

IMHO.
