Understanding Unfair Trade Law in Dallas
Under Texas law, unfair trade is deemed illegal. A common unfair trade practice occurs when a business entity claims that their product or service is their own when it actually belongs to another business entity. False ownership claims can easily confuse a consumer or customer, and cause the actual owner of the product or service to lose vital business.
Since unfair trade and competition is illegal in Texas, the attorneys of Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C., can help Dallas business owners protect their rights to fair trade, and their ownership over their products and services.
Unfair Trade and Competition
Unfair trade and competition fall under intellectual property law; a business has the right to protect their goods and services. Litigation may be necessary in the event that another person involves himself or herself in unfair trade. Some illegal actions regarding unfair trade include:
- False claims over the origin of product/service
- Counterfeiting original products or services
- Misappropriation of trade secrets
Since business owners must protect the integrity of their goods and services, another business or person can be subjected to legal action when they violate trade and competition laws. If your company has been victimized by unfair trade, you may have legal grounds to protect your intellectual property.
