I really hate when a company offers me a free trial and then makes me practically pledge my first born to get it. That’s why I am going to take a pass on Northern Light’s supposedly free trial.
Back from the 2001 dot.bomb graveyard, business research service Northern Light’s 30-day “free” sub is one of those involved registrations where you first have to give your credit card info and lots of other information, and sign a huge terms agreement. No thanks. You want to give me free, give me free. I’ll stick with LexisNexis. At least I know they’ll be around in a year.

Northern Light, is asking new and former subscribers to pay $50 a month for a sub to their database of business and news information.
