dc.description.abstractThe effects of (private, small-scale) piracy on the pricing behavior of producers ofinformation goods are studied within a unified model of vertical differentiation. Althoughinformation goods are assumed to be perfectly horizontally differentiated, demands areinterdependent because the copying technology exhibits increasing returns to scale. Wecharacterize the Bertrand-Nash equilibria in a duopoly. Comparing equilibrium prices to theprices set by a multiproduct monopolist, we show that competition drives prices up andreduces total surplus.en_US
