Couple of questions here:

Where are these private companies getting their reports from? Presumably the public domain, but is it something that can be revealed to the rest of us?

Having worked with government publications, this phenomenon is nothing new. It costs the government WAY too much to publish esoteric information in low quantities. However, there are a number of firms willing to take that information from digital to print for the few purchasers that would like it (at a cost, usually of hundreds of dollars per copy). I have more, but there's a word limit on this comment, so I'll stop now. Email me for more thoughts on it -- going from digital to print makes less sense today, when we're increasingly going from print to digital.
