Unfair competition laws in the U.S.

Any deceptive practice that harms the consumers or other business entities can be classified as unfair competition. The United States law makes sure that one business does not have an unfair advantage over other businesses. Federal and state laws also protect consumers from unfair practices by companies to sell their products.

There are several examples of unfair trade practices that give businesses an edge over others. Trademark infringement allows them to use another company's trademark to attract customers. An unauthorized substation of goods and inappropriate use of trade secrets is also deemed as unfair competition. It is important for the playing field to be equal for all businesses, which is why the law protects businesses from unfair competition.

Unfair competition is also applied to businesses, which mislead their consumers. False representation of products and services through product warranties can cause problems for the users. False advertising of products is done to trick customers into buying certain products that might not be as good as the company presented. Customers deserve to know exactly what they are paying money for, and the law makes sure businesses do not spread disinformation regarding their products. Businesses that are found guilty of unfair competition might have to pay damages and injunctive relief to their competitors.

If your business is facing unfair competition charges, or you feel that another company is violating your rights, it is advisable to discuss the situation with an experienced attorney. The attorney will advise you according to the circumstances and help you deal with the issue in court.
