However, instead of keeping all eight publications online with INFOCON, Haight decided to upload only four of them.
Publisher Tom Hagy said that he is "very happy" with Mealey's arrangement with INFOCON and that the company is earning substantial royalties.
In the past, publishers could upload the editorial content of their newsletters to INFOCON, which in turn would offer this content through NewslettersOnline.
INFOCON signaled its intention to raise the fee structure in a letter to those attending the Miami conference of the Newsletter & Electronic Publishers Association (NEPA) in December, in which it urged publishers to sign up before December 31 to avoid the fee increase.
For that reason, the actual prices that INFOCON charges may vary.
What follows is information that INFOCON distributes to publishers interested in its services.
