The rules regarding what is fair and unfair competition affect virtually all of a company's business decisions — hiring, marketing, sales, customer-relations, and research and development, among others — and are important for employees to understand. Violations of these rules can be very damaging to a company generally and, in some cases, to individual employees.

Course Summary
The law of unfair competition is the product of many years of state and federal court decisions and, more recently, a number of state and federal statutes. This body of law can be distilled into the following categories of unfair competition:

  • Relationships with competitors
  • Relationships with customers
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Monopolistic behavior
  • Price discrimination
  • Exemptions from the antitrust laws
  • Special industries
  • Antitrust in other contexts
