Free competition is a cornerstone of the market system. Its advantage is in the flexible response to any changes in the development of new products and services, in distribution of goods, in consideration of the consumers’ interests, etc. However, in addition to fair competition, there exists unfair competition, which seeks to make a profit through fraud. And the fraudulent activities affect not only consumers, but also decent law-abiding businessmen.
