Submission + - Google to limit free News Access (bbc.co.uk)

cybernanga writes: In what appears to be a victory for Rupert Murdoch, Google have agreed to allow publishers to limit a user to only 5 free news stories per day, with subsequent clicks being directed to payment or registration pages. While this should hopefully keep Murdoch quiet for a while, will this actually achieve the publishers goals, or will it drive users to other publications after their first five free clicks with a particular provider?
