You can always ask the authors directly via email. 
Hopefully you did not use Sci Hub or other illegal methods.

One way to improve the legal options for access to scientific research
could be to mandate a published pricing option by which the author(s) (organization)
could pay a lump sum upfront to make the conference organization
publish the papers with free access. As a stand in for the access
via pay wall. That way at least one could start comparing what different
organizations think they need in revenue for each published paper
and have them think more about becoming leaner (well, SIGCOM is not the
best example for that of course). After all, there are other publishing
organizations with exactly that model, and they widely vary in price.

Yeah, as much as i enjoy the conversation, it does not really help me
finding a solution of how to get hosting for an internet-future mailing
list. But it was a great way to prove the point of derailing discussions
on mailing lists. Thanks, Brian ;-))
