Example text

Because of the lack of empirical work, there is little or no evidence that such harm is likely under real world conditions. The models contain many restrictive assumptions. The models assume that the firm selling Y has an actual monopoly. In practice, firms rarely have a market share equal to 1, and little attention has been paid to considering how the existence of competition in the market for Y might affect their results. 33 Moreover, both the Nalebuff and Greenlee papers ignore the large and varied reasons why bundling might be used.

However, such a point is generally not attainable or only attainable at a prohibitive cost. Certainly, in the case of applying section 2 to bundling by dominant firms, any test will be far from perfect. The forty-five-degree line indicates tests where the probability of finding anticompetitive behavior is the same whether or not the underlying behavior was anticompetitive or not. The standard-free approach in the LePage’s case would lie somewhere on this line. Moreover, rules of per se legality and per se illegality are on this line.

Products in this model are durable so that a good purchased in the first period can be used for consumption in the second. But there are also complementary good upgrades and switching costs. Upgrades mean that each firm can invest in research and development at the beginning of the second period and produce a higher quality complementary good in the second period. 8 Our analysis of this model indicates that tying can be optimal for the monopolist even though the monopolist’s primary good is essential in both periods.
