討論提要

Macho-Stadler and Perez-Castrillo (1991) analyze licensing contract in an monopolistic industry in the presence of asymmetric information. We extend their analysis to an oligopolistic industry, in which the number of the license sold is endogenously determined. We find that in the separating equilibrium that the license are sold to all downstream firms, the efficient innovator uses a higher but suboptimal royalty to signal its type. Furthermore, we characterize the separating equilibrium that maximizes the payoff of the efficient type innovator, and find that the efficient type innovator may use the number of the license sold, instead of a higher royalty, to signal its type.
