A paywall is rising across the 49th parallel, Steve Kupferman writes. The Toronto Globe and Mail hoisted a metered paywall for domestic users last Monday.
The Globe’s attempts to provide added value for subscribers are a little weak, and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to get around the limit, he writes, but readers who can afford it should pay because it’s “the ethical thing to do, although nobody — not even the Globe — will really reward you for doing it.”
