Charging for the The Times online

Karen Blakeman blogs about the latest move from News International.

The Financial Times did the same thing three years ago, making us all pay for additional licenses to be able to obtain FT data through the aggregators. The FT withdrew their content from Lexis, Westlaw and other aggregators, losing several customers in the process.

If The Times does the same thing, is the content unique enough to merit us taking out additional licences and extra cost? I doubt it.
