WED Fan writes “The North Country Gazette, a news blog, says users who read beyond a single page of an article must pay up or they will be tracked down. They don’t have a pay wall. If you go beyond page 1, you owe them. From the article: ‘A subscription is required at North Country Gazette. We allow only one free read per visitor. We are currently gathering IPs and computer info on persistent intruders who refuse to buy subscription and are engaging in a theft of services. We have engaged an attorney who will be doing a bulk subpoena demand on each ISP involved, particularly Verizon Droids, Frontier and Road Runner, and will then pursue individual legal actions.’”
