''Patent Licensing in a Mixed Oligopoly with a Foreign Firm''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.2 )
This paper investigates optimal licensing in a mixed oligopoly with a foreign firm. It is the first to compare licensing by means of a fixed fee and by means of a royalty when the innovator is a public firm. In contrast to a private oligopoly, we show that license via a fixed fee is superior to license via a royalty for the innovator.
