I was wondering if it is considered spam to sell a mailing list you own to someone else if you no longer plan to make use of it? Obviously it CAN be...but what if the subscribers are to be sold to a related list...can it be considered a "buy-out" or "takeover"...I'm assuming that if it is at all appropriate, a special mailer ought to be sent out to the list informing them of this and giving them ample time to unsubscribe...
This leads me to another question: what kind of prices are reasonable per subscriber? I have a mailing list of only about 600...is there some standard? IE: 10 cents a subscriber?

You should certainly send an e-mail out NOW informing users how they can unsubscribe, what the new newsletter is, why it's different, and why it has the same high-quality content. They will certainly get mad if they don't get notified of the switch.
