International Handbook on Unfair Competition

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Frauke Henning-Bodewig (Max Planck) has edited the International Handbook on Unfair Competition.

BOOK ABSTRACT: Written by a worldwide team of experts, this new work surveys and comments on the unfair competition laws of the world's leading economic powers. Following a standard pattern, each chapter introduces the reader to the latest developments in each jurisdiction, highlighting the ways in which the basic legislation and case law relates to enforcement issues, and how unfair competition laws fit with wider considerations of consumer protection and within prevailing intellectual property and competition law frameworks.

Each of the country reports follows the same standard structure: I. Background and General Approach to Unfair Competition Law. II. Legal Basis of Unfair Competition Law and Relations to Neighbouring Areas of Law III. General Considerations IV. General Clause Against Unfair Competition V. Marketing V. Protection of Competitors Against Unfair Trade Practices VI. Specific Protection of Consumers Against Unfair Trade Practices VII. Enforcement

The handbook includes country reports from the following countries: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK, USA
