Unfair competition and abuse of rights

Keywords: good faith, reasonableness, justness, unfair competition, abuse of law, correlation of concepts, form, anticompetitive agreements

The article deals with the issues of correlation between concepts «unfair competition» and «abuse of rights» using the example of institutions of entrepreneurial law. The authors set the task of researching doctrinal views on the criteria for distinguishing these concepts, the trends of their interconnection. The authors do not share the opinion of legal scientists denying the connection between the concepts "unfair competition" and "abuse of rights" and believe that unfair competition is a form of abuse of rights, except for those unfair competitive actions that are expressly prohibited by law.
