Be very careful of conversations here along the lines of:
"I charge so much..."
"Really, hmm I could charge that..."
Cos you could be up on a charge of price fixing

The U.S. law specifically makes discussion of pricing between competitors (all or some) a federal offense. According to either Marshall Kragen or Lewis Rose (both practicing lawyers), several brokers in DC were successfully prosecuted for simply discussing an increase of fees at a dinner meeting.

When, where, or how doesn't matter. Any discussion of pricing by a group of people within the same industry is illegal in the U.S. The feds call it price fixing.



>I'm in the situation of having to put an "official" value on site creation work. Does anyone have some favorite credible sources of such data? Without necessarily oversimplifying, I'm looking for stuff along the lines of so many dollars per page, so many dollars per image.
