In my experience, the press release market is an odd one, essentially shared by two companies who, oddly, don't seem to compete very strenuously with each other, either in their service offerings or pricing. Having another competitor in the market is likely to improve this situation. I have always been impressed with Nasdaq product offerings and have found them to be open and responsive to my needs. I would welcome their involvement in this heretofore stagnant field.
