In today’s world, newspapers have been making the switch to be available online as opposed to in paper. Because of this, there has been a shift in the way they can profit. Aside from the use of profiting from advertisements on their page, many papers such as The New York Times will not allow you to view more than a certain number of articles without paying for a subscription. If it was shared as a commons license which allows for free distribution, it would be widely used and people would read this paper instead of others that require a subscription. At the same time, the paper would have to rely on other forms of profit like solely using advertisement profits. Even with these restrictions, many still jump around this copyright limitation with tactics such as using a different computer. If it was put under strict copyright control, it is safe to assume that many would resort to a different news source. Papers are one of the outlets of media that has had to keep up with the change in technology and adapt to internet news access. With this, copyright licenses may or may not be in their favor when attempting to still be a profitable business.
