This work addresses the right to compete, deceptive marketing, the law of trademarks, and related concepts of intangible property and correlative rights. The term "unfair competition" now describes an array of legal actions addressing methods of competition that improperly interfere with the legitimate commercial interests of other sellers in the marketplace. This Restatement clarifies both the common law principles and the related statutory rules that collectively comprise the modern law of unfair competition.
