''Fixed-fee Pricing and Entry''
( 2015, Vol. 35 No.1 )
This study considers the anti-competitive effect of fixed-fee pricing, such as the one seen in a recent antitrust case in Japan. We show that fixed-fee pricing has stronger exclusionary effect than the per-use pricing's exclusionary effect. However, the restriction on usage of fixed-fee pricing may have a welfare-decreasing effect, although the restriction promotes entry.
Keywords: Fixed-fee pricing, Antitrust policy
