So that’d be more about paying for searching/filtering/indexing/clipping than access?
Journalism Online thinks it can help by serving a smorgasbord of newspaper and magazine content that enables readers to pay one vendor for coverage pulled from multiple websites. Subscription packages, for instance, might cater to Web surfers willing to pay for the best stories about entertainment, business, or something more specialized, such as California politics. Publishers would share the revenue collected by Journalism Online, which believes subscribers will pay an average of $25 a month for professionally produced stories on the Web. The estimate was drawn from a survey last month.
