The Dutch startup Cleeng makes it easy for online publishers to charge for small pieces of online content, so rather than having to erect an all-encompassing paywall, individual articles, videos, and even parts of stories can be made chargeable. It’s a more sensible, less draconian way of taking money from an audience. Now Cleeng has signed up its first major client. La Tribune is France’s second largest financial newspaper and has integrated the plugin to charge for longer, featured pieces.
