With the network neutrality debate, the revenue shar-ing between Internet service providers(ISPs) and con-tent providers(CPs) has been received attentions. In this paper, we study the revenue sharing of them from the perspective of collaboration to reduce online con-tent piracy. With higher efforts of ISPs to reduce illegal content traffics,CPs have higher incentives to share their revenue with ISPs. We study the possibilities of such collaboration with a game theoretic model. Our prelim-inary results seem promising as both ISPs and CPs can be benefited from the cooperation.
