A [nice article from The Times](http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,20411-2294553,00.html "Resisting the digital free-for-all") by Jonathan Weber looking at the decision by American newspaper The Missoulian to use the web simply as a feeder for print subscriptions, looking at the**problem of the free info economy and its impact on print publications along the way.

Local newspaper people, who are used to profitable quasi-monopolies, just can’t stand the idea that people can now get free what they once had to pay for. They’re angry, and defensive, and that sometimes leads people to do dumb things.
