Is getting a paper delivered on Shabbos allowed?
If not, what may be done with it upon delivery?

According to Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen's Sefer (will add in location later) in the name of both Rabbi Moshe Feinstein Zatzal and the Debertziner Rav Zatzal you are not allowed to get newspapers delivered on Shabbos.
This source seems to disagree: http://www.ottmall.com/mj_ht_arch/v38/mj_v38i41.html#COA
It Seems to be quite complex.
There shouldn't be anything wrong if a delivery company decides to deliver a paper to your house on shabbos.
If I told you the talmudical expression "go out and see what the people do" you would conclude that it is also permissible to take it inside and read it.
