Disputing over market space can lead to overcoming ethics and commercial good faith. There are numerous unfair competition tactics and piracies, which cause substantial damage and injuries to the entrepreneur. In this regard, national and international companies are often attacked by unfair competition deeds and piracy in their several ways:

– counterfeiting trademarks;

– undue use of software;

– undue use of copyright;

– undue use of image rights;

– smuggling;

– embezzlement;

– evasion and tax avoidance – (under invoicing, tax misappropriation);

– Industrial espionage – subtraction of industrial secrets – know-how.

Such practices results in large economic losses to national and international corporations, such as the decrease of market share and the value of intellectual assets (brands, inventions, patents, creations etc.), fundamental to the sustainability / expansion of business activity.
