Two firms compete in a Cournot-type duopoly. The industry demand is given by P = 100 − 2Q. Each firm has a constant average and marginal cost of $60.

a. What is the current equilibrium price and quantity in the industry?

ii. What will be the innovator’s profit if it licenses the technology to its competitor at a royalty rate of $10?

iii. Suppose instead that the innovator licenses the technology for a fixed fee. What is the highest fee that the non-innovator will be willing to pay? What will the innovator’s profits be if it can charge the highest possible such fee?
