Schmalensee (1974) shows that, when the cost functions of the advertising e¤ort are linear, the monopoly position is only sustained when the advertising�s e¤ectiveness of the incumbent is relatively high. We show that this result does not hold in a more general nonlinear cost. The no-entry equilibrium may hold even when the relative e¤ectiveness of the incumbent is low. This happens when the size of the market is su¢ ciently low.
