Unfair Competition

The Unfair Competition Prevention Act prohibits various activities such as the unauthorized use of well-known/famous indications of goods, imitation of product forms, illegal acquisition/use/disclosure of trade secrets, illegal use of domain names and assertion or dissemination of false information with respect to a competitor. The Unfair Competition Prevention Act aims to protect credibility, trade secrets, and other such commercial assets by regulating acts of unfair competition, and should be followed regardless of industry or business type.
