“Furthermore, concluded Rabbi Dayan, “companies often willingly continue to send the magazine to the subscriber with the hope that he will decide to renew the subscription or in order to maintain circulation numbers for advertisers. Thus, you are allowed to read the magazine and are not under any financial obligation to them. Nonetheless, if the company is Jewish-owned, you should notify them that your subscription expired, in case there is an unintended error in their distribution list.”
