Many news websites (NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post etc.) make use of paywalls which pop up after the visitor starts reading the article requiring the visitor to pay in order to continue reading the article. Is it assur for one to set up their browser in a way so that paywalls don't pop up (not an incognito window)?
It is clearly documented in Jewish Law that one may not cheat in money matters, that one may not steal - even from non-Jews, and that one may not deceive others.
It would seem that bypassing paywalls falls into at least one of these categories.
