Interesting. Dave Winer has worked out an arrangement with the NY Times that ensures that appropriately formatted archive links will continue to work free of charge, despite their policy of charging for articles after 7 days.

The special coding tells the Times’s server that the link is coming from a weblog, and now and in the future, this link will work without a fee to access the archive.

That’s impressive that the Times is really that serious about wanting people to comment on and link to their stories.
