Soon people will be pirating this?

I doubt it, the chances are it will be covered on another website... That's why I think this is destined to fail.

yea when I think news I think free unless they have exclusives everyday and threaten to sue websites for stealing.

Like everything else LOL movies, software, music, the same thing will happen with news if companies will start charging for content... they should find other way to make their money like adds or something...

the ad market is going to die out soon... that platform for making money is slowly dieing.

It's really not going to pirated as as soon as a main news network covers a story a million blogs cover it too!

I dont think the ad model on the whole is dying but the ones to survive are the content relevant models. A site like NYT cant make much money cause their content is so spread out. Take Huffpost vs Mashable. Mashable made about 560,000 bucks in revenue in 2009 with just 30-40 posts a day on tech, split among a few staff members..while huffpost has so many writers and so much daily content making 2.3 million. overall a niche site makes more sense, because you get targeted ads to the relevant audience.
