A hypothetical question as they say.

Suppose someone uses their intellectual capacity and experience to produce a Regulatory Overview for a certain industry. Assembled 2 years ago.

If a firm wants to buy that to do a self test, to be better prepared,
can it be sold as property, an asset, and taxed as such,Sch. D Vs Schedlue C, say consulting income.

No, it can't be Schedule D income. See the instructions for Schedule D In a nutshell, works that you create yourself for sale to others are not capital assets.
