Perfect price discrimination with costless arbitrage by Joshua Gans( file )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The ability of a monopoly seller to prevent resale is often presented as a necessary condition for first degree and third degree price discrimination. In this paper, the authors explore this claim and show that, even with costless arbitrage markets, price discrimination may continue to be both feasible and profit maximising despite potential resale. With finite numbers of consumers, arbitrage markets may be?thin?, in the sense that there can be too few low-valuation consumers to supply high-valuation consumers. The paper examines both ex ante and ex post arbitrage markets and shows how a monopoly can exploit potential?thinness? to profitably price discriminate. In each case, the authors present sufficient conditions for equilibrium price discrimination. The paper also notes that the form of such discrimination depends on the nature of the arbitrage market, and considers business strategies that a monopoly might adopt to exacerbate market thinness. The results show how market depth and the effectiveness of arbitrage are the key elements for price discrimination, rather than the per se prevention of reselling. These pricing strategies are critically important in the efficient management of intellectual property
Network externalities and the myth of profitable piracy by Stephen P King( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Recent papers have argued that a firm might be able to raise its profit by allowing some customers to steal its product. In particular, with network externalities, so that customers value the product more highly the more widely the product is used, it is claimed that piracy can be profitable. In this paper, the authors analyse these claims when the producer can freely choose the degree of piracy prevention. They show that piracy can never be profitable if the producer can directly price discriminate between potential pirates and other customers. In the absence of price discrimination, piracy will only raise profits when the ability to pirate is inversely related to customer willingness-to-pay

Patent renewal fees and self-funding patent offices by Joshua Gans( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
A socially optimal structure of application and renewal fees for patents would encourage the maximal number of applications while reducing effective patent length. In this paper, the authors find that when patent offices are required to be self-funding, resource constraints can distort this fee structue. Specifically, a financially constrained, but welfare-oriented patent office will tend to raise initial application fees while lowering renewal fees. This creates two detriments to social welfare as it discourages the filing of some patents while extending the effective life of others
