Intellectual Property: Interface with unfair competition
There is a close relationship between intellectual property law and competition law. This is so considering the activity of economic operators in the market who -in some cases- resort to marketing and commercialization strategies for their goods and/or services that are not always aligned with the principles that govern loyal and fair competition. Thus, for example, acts of confusion, imitation or deception through the use of trademarks, slogans, designs, utility models or works protected by copyright that belong to third parties usually occur within the competitive race initiated by said economic operators. For this reason, the need arises to understand the concepts that underlie competition law and how complementary they are both substantially and procedurally for the defense of intellectual property.
