This paper considers the effects on pricing of digital content from unauthorized file-sharing. Producers must not only consider copyright protection, but also the effect on transaction costs from unauthorized file-sharing. That is, less supply caused by a higher price makes the transaction costs higher due to the difficulty for consumers to find a file they desire. We examine a criterion as to whether this situation makes a monopoly price higher or not.
