Law 3/1991, from 10th of January, regarding Dishonest Competition, looks to protect competition in the interest of all of those who participate in the market, establishing the prohibition of certain acts of dishonest competition.
Illicit or dishonest competition is every type of behaviour that could, using objective analysis elements, be framed as acts contrary to the demands of good faith inside the commercial plans with the purpose of obtaining a competitive advantage.
It is important to know what acts could be considered as dishonest, the law only states and defines some acts which could be considered dishonest competition, without it signifying a closed list of acts:
In this sense, we can highlight the most usual actions, like the violation of the prohibition of a non-compete clause in a labour contract, the dishonest competition carried out by an old partner of the company.
We have to have in mind that, the more time the behaviour takes place, the bigger the damage. That is why it is important to communicate the illicit behaviour to our legal counsel as soon as we have knowledge of this behaviour.

Industrial property is a group of exclusive rights that a person can have over an invention, an industrial design, or over a distinctive sign. These rights must be protected from third parties, which is why it is necessary to have the exclusive right over the asset.
In Spain, there are various types of industrial property rights, each of which have their own legislation, granted by the competent body.
For an exclusive right to be born over any of these industrial properties, a registration has to be done. This registration is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended benefit from the numerous advantages that the industrial property provides.
