We extend the model of Cornand and Heinemann (2008, Economic Journal) and examine how to implement partial announcement by selling public information when the agents' action is strategic complements. In a game of information acquisition, there exist multiple equilibria and the partial announcement equilibrium is unstable if the authorities sell public information at a constant price. However, if the authorities offer an increasing pricing rule, partial announcement equilibrium is stable and implementable.
