Unfair Business Practices

The use of another’s trademark, design or product appearance in a derogatory context or imitation is a breach of good business practice. Misleading and untruthful marketing is also unfair business practice. Similarly, obtaining, using and publishing trade secrets and other information covered by a non-disclosure agreement – for example, technical drawings – of another company is considered to be unfair business practice or otherwise unlawful conduct.
