Contrats de licences et asymétrie d'information
AbstractThis paper deals with the form of licencing contracts when there is asymmetric information. We show that when the licensor has private information he can signals the high quality patents through contracts based on royalties. Conversely, when the licensee has more information about the value of the patent, contracts including only a fixed fee attract those for whom the innovation has a high value.
