RE: DeepDyve - 99 cent article rentals

Very interesting development.

But going to the DeepDyve site to test it, the first paper I 
looked at was one from the home page:

Phenotypes of Mutations in the 5'-UTR of a Limiting Transcription 
Factor in Aspergillus nidulans Can Be Accounted For by 
Translational Inhibition and Leaky Scanning 

You can either pay $0.99 to rent the article for a day or follow 
the link 'Download Article from Publisher' and get it for free! 
The paper is over 6 months old and so free from the publisher.

Will readers be willing to pay $0.99 for the convenience of 
getting access to all articles covered by DeepDyve or will they 
feel resentment that they are being asked to pay for something 
that is free elsewhere?
