NME.com: Long term future behind closed doors?

Scary rumblings from the US, where AOL is planning to put all of the Time magazine titles (which it acquired when it lied about its value to force a merger) into its 'walled garden.'

Apparently, now the key message for all AOL companies is that if AOL goes down, the whole thing comes down.

You don't have to do too many sums on the backs of ciggie packets to see what this could mean for AOL's British magazine empire, which includes, of course, NME. It'll be worth keeping an eye on the American experience.
