The New York Times stops charging for access to parts of its Web site,
effective at midnight tonight (i.e. 19th september 2007, 04:00 UTC).
What is valuable: it
will also make available its archives from 1987 to the present without charge, as well as those from 1851 to 1922, which are in the public domain. There will be charges for some material from the period 1923 to 1986, and some will be free.
