I hope some of the defendants (who actually spend money on those proceedings) are now preparing their costs bills, per CPR 38.6(1) (http://www.justice.gov.uk/civil/procrules_fin/contents/parts/part38.htm)
The issue of 2/3 attrition overlooks one important factor - when The Times introduced the paywall, the subscription price was £1 for the first 30 days then £2 weekly. Now, I paid £1 for the 30 days, but as my 30 days are about to expire, I've cancelled to subscription with effect from the day it was going to be renewed... So saying that The Times' readership decreased by ca. 66% is somewhat of a misnomer and the real impact would only be seen once people start cancelling their "introductory" subscriptions!
