Yesterday, November 22, 2022, in Geneve, Switzerland, Mr. Marcus Höpperger on behalf of the World Intellectual Property Organization – WIPO presented the “Status Report on the Protection Against Unfair Competition in WIPO Member States.
This report was commissioned by WIPO and “prepared by Martin Senftleben, Professor and Director, Institute for Information Law (IViR),University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in collaboration with a group of international experts who prepared country and region reports. The Report takes stock and explores which categories of unfair competition (unfair behaviour in the marketplace) play a role in unfair competition law and practice in the different regions of the world.
The Report clarifies in which way Article 10bis of the Paris Convention has been applied in national legislation and case law. It sheds light on the different categories of unfair behavior (categories listed in Article 10bis of the Paris Convention and additional categories that may have been identified at the national level) that have been developed in jurisprudence and legislation in the regions worldwide.”
