Unfair Competition

Protecting Your Business From Unfair Competition

Unfair competition occurs when a business suffers an economic injury through a deceptive or wrongful business practice. There are a variety of business torts that are broadly considered in the unfair competition law, including:

  • Trademark infringement
  • Misappropriation of intangible assets not protected by trademark or copyright
  • False advertising
  • “Bait and switch” selling tactics
  • Unauthorized substitution of one brand of goods for another
  • Use of confidential information by a former employee to solicit customers
  • Theft of trade secrets
  • Breach of a restrictive covenant
  • Trade libel
  • A false representation of products or services

If you believe you are the victim of unfair competition, you can sue the business causing your damages. Some of the remedies available to you are:

  • Monetary damages for their false or slanderous representations
  • Refunds of lost revenue caused by the unfair business practice
  • An injunction to have the business stop engaging in unfair business practices
