Unfair Competition

In the U.S., allegations of unfair competition -- including unlawful, unfair, or fraudulent business act or practice, or false, deceptive, or misleading advertising -- may arise under state antitrust laws and the federal Lanham Act.  Investigations of conduct and damages in these matters involve assessments of business justifications and competitive injury.  Specific remedies can differ according to the jurisdiction in which the action is brought.
