  paragraph  thirty-seven of subdivision (b) of section eleven hundred one
  of this article. If the  subscription  period  of  the  electronic  news
  service  is  other  than  a  year,  the  cap  amount  shall  be adjusted
  proportionately in determining whether the  subscription  price  exceeds
  the  cap  amount.  If  the  contract for the sale of the electronic news
  service grants more than one person the right  to  view  the  electronic
  news  service, the receipts from the sale of, or the consideration given

  sells such electronic periodical and such other components separately in
  the regular course of business. If  the  requirement  in  the  preceding

  sentence  is satisfied, then the exemption will apply to an amount equal
  to the bundled price multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is
  the price of the electronic periodical  when  sold  separately  and  the
  denominator  of  which  is  the  sum  of  the  price  of  the electronic
  periodical when sold separately and the price of the other components of

  separately in the  regular  course  of  business,  whether  or  not  the

  the bundled price multiplied by a fraction, the numerator  of  which  is
  the  price  of  the  electronic news service when sold separately in the
  regular course of business, and the denominator of which is the  sum  of
  the  price  of  the  electronic news service when sold separately in the
  regular course of business and the prices of the other  components  when
  sold  separately  in  the regular course of business; provided, however,
  that in no case shall the exempt amount be greater than  the  amount  of
  the  charge  for the electronic news service when sold separately in the
  regular course of business.
