The Los Angeles Daily Journal already has the highest pay wall around separating its stories from the Internet: subscribe for $237 for three months (or $707 for a year) or you see no stories online. By the looks of this note to the legal daily's staff from editor David Houston, the wall is being reinforced.

I hope you have had a chance to check out our updated website. We're still ironing out kinks so let me know if you see anything funky.
Subscribers are no longer able to email a story. We are also no longer sending out a daily headlines email. If you get calls about this refer them to me.
No more lawyers passing a story link on to colleagues or clients. And no more headlines for anybody who hasn't paid up. If you've never heard of the Daily Journal, or never see its reporters' stories, this is why.
