Yahoo Ditches Paid Document Search

from the ain't-no-searching-being-done dept

Back in January we posted a story about Yahoo teaming up with Northern Light to offer a paid document search feature – that would let people pay for older news articles they found. At the time we wondered whether or not enough people would be willing to pay for such things. The answer is apparently no, as Yahoo has killed the deal. As someone pointed out when we posted the original article, you could find a number of the articles online for free if you just went over to Google instead.
