Cournot Competition in a Multiproduct Duopoly: Specialization through Licensing

Luigi Filippini ()

International Journal of Business and Economics, 2006, vol. 5, issue 3, 201-210

Abstract: In a duopoly where both firms produce substitutes, we show that under process innovation, specialization is the equilibrium attained with cross-licensing. Each firm produces only the good for which it has an advantage, and social welfare may improve. Patent pool extension confirms the results.
