OOPs...The Economist (finally) realizes it was giving free digital subscriptions

The Economist magazine has been serving some people a digital subscription to its magazine for free, sometimes for as long as five years. According to a story in paidContent, the magazine will revoke those premium digital subs next week and insist that people pay for them.
“There was an error in our database which resulted in a number of people being assigned full subscription rights by mistake,” [said] Economist digital editions publisher Oscar Grut. A digital-only, multi-device sub is worth US$110 a year.
