"Unfair Competition" describes the area of antitrust and trade regulation dealing with dishonest or fraudulent rivalry in trade and commerce – i.e. "deceptive trade practices." Examples include: false advertising, passing off, commercial disparagement, and misappropriation.

Unfair competition, antitrust, and consumer protections laws can be complex and technical. If you feel that your rights as a consumer or business owner have been violated, an employment attorney or business lawyer can help guide you through the legal process; make sure your rights are protected; and, if applicable, help you file a report with the Federal Trade Commission or even an unfair competition lawsuit.
