BusinessWeek: Mainstream press will open archives

BusinessWeek’s Blogspotting says it’s just a matter of time before the big newspapers and magazines make their online archives available for free, “including BusinessWeek.”

It increases a newspaper’s authority.
And, it’s beneficial to society.

Update: The Times is considering offering a $50 annual subscription to their archives:
