The vernacular used in discussing unfair competition and antitrust in matters of business and commerce is often antiquated. Think, for example, of the term "robber baron," which was used to refer to titans of shipping, real estate, and other industries who acquired vast wealth by consolidating power and influence to thereby virtually control relevant markets. In doing so, the board game Monopoly might come to mind, with its old-time tycoon fashioning a bowler hat and spectacles.
For modern day businesses, however, it is critical to understand that unfair competition and even violations of federal antitrust law are no longer a thing of the past to be reduced to fun family games. An experienced San Jose business law and bankruptcy attorney is already well aware of this, keeping up at all times with the "rules of the game."
