In the uniting Europe, economies are growing together most quickly. Trade and settling of companies takes place across borders, often not only in a bilateral but in multilateral ways. Companies should keep track with the valid conditions in each country, since apart from tax law the company law may differ and, in comparison to Germany, some countries show simplified regulations. The authors are experts from the particular countries.

A quick approach for jurists, managers, firm owners and firm founders.

Extracts from the information booklet

The revised form of the Law Against Unfair Competition sees a continuation of the liberalisation of the Competition Law. Crucial points of the reform are the increase of consumer protection, the abolition of the ban for special events through the omission of regulations for seasonal sales, jubilee sales and closing down sales, the introduction of the right to levy profits for anticompetitive actions and the regimentation of cold calls. Not only the numerous improvements but also the revised systematics of the law lead to an increased need of information for everyone concerned with this matter.

This book offers a quick and comprehensive overview of the matter through its clear structure and practical comments which help the reader find solutions quickly.

Firstly, the authors provide a good outline of the historical basis of the Law Against Unfair Competition and its development. They then explain the system of the Competition Law within the legal order, the law regarding unfair competition in Europe and competition within the public sector. The comments about the law against unfair competition concentrate on the most important judiciary case law, legal procedures and references to foreign competition laws. Price regulation is also thoroughly explained. Due to the increasing importance of foreign legal systems, a separate chapter is devoted to them. It contains an overall view of competition laws in many different countries, including China and the USA as well as the European countries.

The appendix includes relevant directives, wording of the law, pamphlets etc. as well as an alphabetical table of cases with an index.

The book contains the commentary on the Trade Mark Act taking into account the legal amendments, etc. This is followed by a systematic explanation of the European Trade Mark Regulation as well as the trade mark laws of selected foreign countries.

In chapter two, the European Trade Mark Regulation is presented in detail, whereas chapter three offers an overview of trade mark law in various European states, but also in China, Japan, Russia and the USA.
