Game over on AOL pay scheme – or is it?

AOL announced today that they will allow non-profits to send certified email though their system for free, which may quiet some of the recent anti-paid-email movement’s constituents. Or will it?

The next few days reaction to AOL’s move will tell everyone whether folks like MoveOn really care about an open internet, or just want free access themselves. Watch for spin if the DearAOL group splinters.

Or maybe that is exactly what AOL wanted them to do.


Sounds like a divide and conquer strategy after all. I just don’t see how they are going to get out of this one. Maybe AOL should just throw them the keys.
