We considered a revenue sharing problem between a content provider (CP) and a Internet service provider (ISP) when two ISPs competes with each other. ISPs can provide a piracy monitoring service, which may increase the profit of CP, to incentivize CP to collaborate with one of them. We modeled the problem as a multi-stage game and characterized an equilbrium content price, piracy monitoring level, and revenue sharing ratio. We found a condition in which ISP and CP may collaborate even under competition. We also provide numerical results.
