This short study programme will guide participants through the methods and means for the regulation of competition in commercial markets by studying concepts such as trademark registration, dominance, abuse and collusive behaviour. A focus on relevant local and European jurisprudence will provide participants with a practical insight into the protection of fair competition and trade both in Malta and the EU, whether in terms of law or in terms of practice.
Among other things, the participants will understand which laws would apply to which scenario, whether they are of a local or European level. They will also comprehend the basic notions of competition law on the local and EU sphere. Participants will also be able to draw comparative analyses between local and foreign commercial law and understand concepts which emerge from local and European jurisprudence.
