Google isn't going to allow indexing of millions of pages that all lead to a "You want to read this, pay up" offer.
If they leave archives unprotected and articles become free for everyone after a period of time they will all become duplicate as others post the stories and get indexed long before they do.
If going paid is the game then noindex and a good legal team is a must, I just don't see enough people paying to support the top heavy company when free alternatives are truly everywhere. When the times starts to try to assess blame later on I'm sure they'll aim it Google's way, can I buy front row tickets for the fight?
