Protection from Unfair Competition

Unfair competition is any act of competition contrary to honest commercial and other practices in economic activity including the misuse of goodwill of business entity, hindering business entities in the competition process and achievement of illegal competitive advantages, unlawful collection, disclosure and use of commercial secrets.

In practice business entities face the issue of unfair competition very often. Achieving commercial benefits business entities often tend to use doubtful methods from the point of view of competition legislation (comparative advertising, the use of false information, etc.). On the other hand business entities face unfair competition committed against them as well and want to stop such manifestation and to bring guilty business entity to prosecution. It should be noted about essentiality of sanctions that may be imposed by Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine for actions recognized as unfair competition.
