AOL Launches Stand-alone Internet ServiceAmerica Online was very aggressive with the pricing of the GNN service. According to America Online, the service will be available in over 600 cities, in the U.S. making it, according to the press release, “the first truly national full-featured Internet service for consumers.”
Unlike the AOL service, where the typical trial offer waives the $9.95 monthly fee and allows use of up to 10 hours before the charges kick in, the GNN service offers FREE UNLIMITED USAGE for the first month. After that, pricing is $14.95/mo. for 20 hours of service with additional hours at $1.95. Short of flat-fee based services, this is one of the most aggressively priced plans available.

That being said: I THINK infomarket is AN INCREDIBLY AWESOME CONCEPT!
The central concept behind infomarket is simple — it’s copyright protection for publishers. There are other facets to infomarket, notably the vision of a search tool for a vast set of databases and the ability to serve as a clearing house to sell
content for publishers.
