New unfair competition publications

Readers may be interested in some recent publications by the MARQUES Unfair Competition Team.

A new edition of the Look-Alike Chart has been published. This provides information on law and practice on look-alike products in a total of 47 jurisdictions, including most European countries as well as other important markets.

It has been updated to include developments since the last edition, which was published in 2020, and can be downloaded from the “Publications” page on the Team’s website.

The Chart is structured around 17 key questions/topics and has been compiled with the help of experts in each jurisdiction covered.

The Team has also added two new articles as part of its project on company names, trade names and other identifiers. These cover The Netherlands and Hungary and are written by Maarten Haak of Hoogenraad & Haak and Enikő Karsay of SBGK respectively.

The project now includes articles on 10 jurisdictions written by members of the Team, with more due to be added.

All of the articles on company names, trade names and other identifiers are collected in a special section of the Team’s page on the MARQUES website.

Note that access to Team publications is restricted to MARQUES members who are logged into the website. If you are not a MARQUES member, find out more about joining here.
