The law describes unfair competition as anything unlawful that gives one business a competitive advantage over a competitor. Actions that can be considered unfair business practices vary dramatically and can include:
- Cutting off a competitor's access to products
- Slander or libel
- Discriminatory pricing with no justification
- False advertising or false representation of products and services
Unfair competition overlaps with the area of intellectual property. It often involves trademark or trade name infringement, or misappropriation of trade secrets.
