@ginidietrich Perhaps, competing like Google ... My strategy professor told their strategy is based or inspired by Brown and Eisenhardt's "Competing on the Edge" ... Just a thought.

@ginidietrich Thanks for replying. I'm little new to US newspaper industry situation, want more explanation.
Do you think a heavy consumer of NYT would take this tedious route of getting every article from indirect sources?
Or, NYT deliberately created this leakages, as we know, to keep up its traffic, and unlike London Times, its traffic didn't fall? WSJ also has leaks in its paywall.
But I can see that paywall alone, as strategy, never really worked for other conventional industries hit by web disruption. What strategy do you suggest for NYT so that it can monetize in a better way its content?
Can you explain how NYT's paywall has failed, despite getting around half a million subscribers? The unique visitors haven't dropped, if not increased. Or, is it that the enticing promo pricing couldn't lure them to pay full price? Or, do you mean that growth is halted and it won't grow much?
