ABSTRACT
This article is a study of firms' incentives for proprietary or common interface in a vertically differentiated duopoly. We assume a heterogeneous population of buyers; sellers are heterogeneous in quality of the modules. Using a simple one-period model of complete information in simultaneous move game it is shown that standard interface obtains as a unique Nash equilibrium under single quality leadership. Additionally, we show that the equilibrium is stable against any incentive to pre-bundle the modules as assembled pure products.
