According to this Information Today article, Bloomberg Inc. has acquired Business Week magazine from McGraw-Hill, and has chosen to discontinue online access to full text of issues after 12/7/2009 via Factiva.

The entire archive of Business Week will be removed from Factiva by the end of February 2010. Business Week will also be removed from the Factiva Newsstand landing page within the next week.

Coverage dates for Business Week in Factiva are now 14 January 1985 (issue:2876) until 7 December 2009 (issue:4158).

As of this posting date, the full text of current issues of Business Week is still available in the databases shown at this link; but this may change pending Bloomberg’s negotiations with other database vendors who offer the full text and archive of Business Week.
